London-based Saint Daniel releases his debut album ‘‘ALL THAT IS PROFANE BECOMES SACRED AGAIN’, taking influence from some of music's finest trailblazers.
Saint Daniel is the rising star with an inherently 80s-focused vocal palette. Likened to bands like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran, the artist’s synth pop tendencies single him out as a unique case study, as he looks to reference the past to influence the future of electronic music. Unwilling to be bound by one genre, his debut album ‘ALL THAT IS PROFANE BECOMES SACRED AGAIN’, was released today.
London-based, British-Russian Saint looks to experimental artists in the calibre of Charli XCX and FKA Twigs as strong reference points. Featuring across a range of publications and being championed by many tastemakers, his success is showing no signs of slowing down and this new record is set to establish himself as pop’s new multi-layered superstar.
‘ALL THAT IS PROFANE BECOMES SACRED AGAIN’ takes its title from the poem “The Alchemy Of Love”. Written by Persian poet Rumi, the piece references universal love with an honesty shared by Saint. Touching on love and all the various forms it takes, the record presents a story of self-acceptance from a place of profound honesty.
