“Sailing” by Saint Clair

"Sailing" by Saint Clair is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'.

Saint Clair is streaming her debut single ‘Sailing’, released via Kieron McIntosh’s (Plan B, Paloma Faith) new Wunderkind imprint. Produced by Ben Jones and Raffertie (Ninja Tune) the lustrous, electronic-soul single finds the French-speaking Londoner mastering a slick distillation of classic song-writing sensibility and wholly contemporary influences including Son Lux and James Blake.

A unique voice born out of a teenage discovery of classic standards (Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder) and more recently singing for Kwabs and Ghostpoet – Saint Clair now emerges on her own terms. And as the sparse handclaps of ‘Sailing’ give way to a shimmering chorus which unfurls beneath her multi-tracked vocal.
