EXCLUSIVE Interview: Saint Clair

Saint Clair, aka Emma Topolski, has shared the stunning new single 'goddess' which is the first track to be taken from her upcoming EP 'in the violet hour'. 'goddess' is poignant and brilliant. 

I caught up with Saint Clair to discuss her new music. You can also read my previous interview with her here.

How are you?

I’m keeping well thank you considering these exceptional times. Just trying to stay creative and take each day as it comes.

Are you excited to be releasing new music?

My sister and I have been working on a 4-track visual EP over the past year so we’re really looking forward to finally sharing it with the world.

What is your new single ‘goddess' about?

goddess is the first chapter in a 4-part visual EP called in the violet hour which journeys through the different stages of grief following the loss of our Dad. 

Can you tell me about the music video for ‘goddess'?

In goddess we meet our character in her grief for the first time. I won’t reveal too much but I will say there’s a metamorphosis and a very, very, very large cake!

Who are your musical influences?

The Beatles, Nirvana, Frank Ocean, Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, James Blake, Outkast, Jeff Buckley

What can you tell me about your new EP, 'In The Violet Hour'? When can we hear it?

in the violet hour is a 4-track EP accompanied by 4 very distinct visuals directed by my sister Tamsin. The videos journey through different stages of the grieving process following the loss of our Dad and although each video can be watched as stand-alone pieces (which I will be releasing online every month), they also flow together to make a short film which will be out on November 6th. We’re planning to host a screening for that but will wait and see what the guidelines are by then! 

What's next for you?

My focus at the moment is on sharing all the videos for in the violet hour and hopefully hosting a screening and organising an immersive live show in November. I’ve been locked down with my sister so we’ve shot some special live videos to accompany the release too. Otherwise, I joined Bombay Bicycle Club at the beginning of the year and was supposed to be touring extensively with them so hopefully those gigs will be rescheduled slowly but surely! I also play bass with CHILDCARE and will be recording album 2.
