    Time to elevate your mind.

    Brooklyn-based synth-pop outfit St. Lucia will release their highly anticipated full-length debut, When the Night, on October 8 via Neon Gold/Columbia Records. The album, which expands upon St. Lucia's unique brand of dreamy, nostalgic pop, was produced by the band's own Jean-Philip Grobler, with additional production and mixing from Chris Zane (Passion Pit), Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters) and Andy Baldwin.

    And now, some deets on St. Lucia.

    Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Jean-Philip Grobler grew up performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School, learning everything from Bach to minimalist opera. St. Lucia was born out of a moment in early 2010 when Grobler was looking to the past for inspiration. Growing frustrated with a rock project that was starting to feel forced, he delved back into the music that had first inspired him: Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Gabriel and other songs from his youth. After setting up shop in a small Williamsburg studio in Brooklyn, Grobler began to experiment with these new influences and open the lid on his new project. Teaming up with friends Nick Brown, Ross Clarke, Nicky Paul and Patricia Beranek to perform live, the newly formed group was signed to HeavyRoc Music after grabbing the attention of NYC production team The Knocks. Shortly after, St. Lucia partnered with Columbia imprint Neon Gold Records.
