St. Lucia Brings Back the 80's at Levels

Whoever said 80’s synthpop was dead?

The spirit of the 80’s was very much alive at Levels this Thursday night as New York indie pop outfit St. Lucia took the stage. Dressed in tacky button downs and slacks Jean-Philip Grobler and his team slammed out jam after jam of synthy goodness.

Bright choruses echoed as St. Lucia played their hits, ranging from older favorites like “Before the Dive” and “All Eyes on You” to their new dance anthem, “Elevate.” One particular song, “We Got it Wrong,” had Grobler leading the audience in a repeating chorus lasting nearly the entire song. It felt like a house party from a John Hughes film. Right down to the haircuts. How could you not love these guys?

If you missed St. Lucia this time around, you can catch them on tour with Two Door Cinema Club this fall in a city near you. You can also download their new EP featuring “Elevate” and exclusive remixes from Passion Pit and more on St. Lucia’s Facebook page for a limited time.

Keep jamming friends, and keep it real.
