Saint Saviour by Genie Espinosa


I went to see Hurts play at Union Chapel last week, as part of Mencap's Little Noise sessions. They were wonderful: haunting, elegant, emotional - as arresting now as the first time I saw them.

I really enjoyed the support act Saint Saviour.

We described Saint Saviour as:
  • Kate Bush meets Liza Minelli
  • Marcella Detroit meets Robyn
  • Enya meets Roisin Murphy
  • Dolores O'Riordan meets Enya
  • Enya goes to Florence (with the Machine)

Ergo: amazing.

Maybe the church setting set me to thinking more than usual, but the lyrics Saint Saviour sang really stood out: "don't shine the spotlight on me, I'm already bright enough". Profound, no?
