Simply put, Santah are still lovers and this Chicago bred quintet are using a collection of five gorgeous tracks to prove it, on their newest EP, You're Still A Lover.
Touted as one of the Must See Acts at CMJ 2012 by The Music Ninja, Santah excel in crafting a musical palette that takes the best of their stunning debut LP, White Noise Bed and merges it with a more mature sound, full of soaring choruses and introspective lyricism. All while, still maintaining the sincerity and charm that have endeared the likes of Impose, MTV Hive and PASTE who noted, "You're Still A Lover molds into a dreamlike stream of consciousness proclaiming hopes for love and happiness."
Dreamy love songs like "Indigo" and "Teeth" wade into warm waters, showcasing the vocal chemistry between lead singer Stanton McConnell and sister Vivian, now fully acclimated into the group. Sprawling anthems "Springfield," "North Coast," and "I Love the Way You Seal a Deal" balance out the slower tunes, all while contributing to the simple self-prescribed reaffirmation: You're Still a Lover.
You're Still A Lover is available to stream now over at Spinner and PASTE and "Teeth" is now streaming on Spin Magazine's SPIN PLAYlist for the October Ipad edition.
You're Still A Lover is now available and purchase the special edition 12" via Chicago's infamous Saki Records, as part of the store's newly minted in-house label.
