Self-released (2017)

As one of the ’17 On The Frontline’, you can trust that – from here on out – Santino Le Saint is gonna bring the heat. And nothing exemplifies that statement better than his achingly poignant new cut, ‘Down’.

Written, arranged and produced entirely by Santino himself, ‘Down’ possesses all of the smoky guitar riffs and painfully evocative vocal lines present in ‘THE SECOND EP’. However, there’s something slightly different about ‘Down’; it’s ballad-like structure and sparse instrumentation only accentuates further Santino’s layered, arena-ready voice: ‘Told me I’m special / Say I’m a star / Just cuz I’m high doesn’t mean I’ll go far.’

Although Santino’s dejection on ‘Down’ seems irreversible – his artistic trajectory is only going one way: up. So, whether this track will appear on a follow-up EP, or perhaps partly constitute a more intricate project, its still up there on quality. But, needless to say, whatever this multi-instrumentalist has lined up – it’s gonna cut through the noise.
