Brooklyn-based synth-pop outfit St. Lucia will release their highly anticipated full-length debut, When The Night, on October 8 via Neon Gold/Columbia Records. Listen to a new track “Elevate” here: https://soundcloud.com/st-lucia/elevate/.
Led by South African-bred Jean-Philip Grobler, St. Lucia’s previous releases—2012’s “September” EP and a self-titled EP were critically acclaimed. The song “All Eyes On You” was recently featured in national television campaigns for both Victoria’s Secret and Taco Bell.
A fall tour with Two Door Cinema Club kicks off in October. St. Lucia will also perform at this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago on Aug. 3, as well as a special Lollapalooza after-show that same evening at Lincoln Hall. The band has recently toured with Ellie Goulding.
In addition, Pandora has featured St. Lucia in its first-ever “Toyota Sessions.” The program—which highlights exciting emerging artists—explores the evolution of St. Lucia’s music through in-depth interviews, exclusive live tracks, and behind-the-scenes videos.

Grobler is also heavily involved in projects outside of St. Lucia. He serves as producer for the debut LP by Brooklyn-based labelmates HAERTS, remixing songs for bands including Passion Pit, Foster the People and Charli XCX, and collaborating with DJs ranging from The Knocks to RAC.
