Self care is at the crux of the new EP from musician and producer Luci Saint; self care and camaraderie in the face of isolation. Last year’s Something You Want was a quality introduction from this iteration of the Teesside producer, an animated mix that made use of the expansive space provided – on False Idols you’re getting a bit of a 180, with a lot more emphasis placed on the current state of mind of the lad himself.

The EP’s title track could easily find its way onto a Chase & Status record circa 2011 — a stomping DnB banger that doubles up as a PSA against the need for artificial role models. Vibe heavy Ragnarok is a whisper at the end of the world, Saint’s interpretation of relationships and the limitations that come with strings attached. EP closer What You Saying is probably the most direct of the trio, one which imprints a hypnotic, reeling feeling.

False Idols is in many ways a coping mechanism for Luci Saint; a way to express himself without borders in hope of inspiring others to follow suit when going through the ringer that is anxiety and depression – you know, personal shit, the kind most tend to keep concealed on their person at all times – making for an honest and relatable listen.

Luci Saint releases False Idols EP on 31st July
