St. Lucia's "Matter" is Already One of the Best Pop Albums of 2016


St. Lucia's sophomore effort, Matter, is the New Order / Depeche Mode / Erasure revival album I never knew I needed. The entire collection is an energetic cornucopia of earwormy synths and beats that will be playing on repeat for the next several months. From the uplifting "Dancing on Glass" to "Help Me Run Away," a song that belongs in the opening credits of an 80s spring break movie, Matter is a pop masterpiece.

You can sample some of the amazing tracks from the following videos in which the group's lead vocalist and founder, Jean-Philip Grobler, breaks down each song on what is proving to be one of the best pop albums of 2016 (and we've only just finished January):
