ACCLAIMED SCOTTISH ALT-POP BROTHER DUO RETURN WITH HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW SINGLE
Glasgow, Scotland-based alt-pop brother duo SAINT PHNX have shared their eagerly anticipated new single, “Friends,” available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. Featuring traditional Scottish bagpipes and sentimental lyrics, “Friends” has all the makings of a roundtable drinking song.
“Friends” marks the first new music from SAINT PHNX following their chart-topping Atlantic Records label debut EP, HAPPY PLACE, available for streaming and download HERE. The EP proved an immediate sensation upon its arrival earlier this year, ascending to #1 on the Official Scottish Albums Chart fueled in part by such standout singles as the inspiring “Angel” and the breakthrough title track, “Happy Place,” both joined by official music videos streaming now at YouTube. In addition, SAINT PHNX recently played to a crowd of 10,000 at TRNSMT and just sold out their upcoming show at Barrowlands eight months in advance.
A touching ode to SAINT PHNX’s late father, “Happy Place” premiered last summer and quickly struck a chord with listeners around the globe, earning over 20M streams to date and top 20 placement on a variety of streaming charts worldwide. Along with its popular success, the track was met by widespread support from friends and fellow artists (including Yungblud, Lewis Capaldi, Catie Turner, and Jamie Miller), as well as such publications as FLAUNT, Wonderland, and more. “With a palpably uplifting energy, ‘Happy Place’ has an incredibly unique vibe to it,” wrote American Songwriter. “With such a distinctive message of hope, grounded by the profound sadness of losing a parent, the song boasts an incredibly complex emotional palette, marrying the joys and sorrows of life into a single, beautiful expression.”
In addition, HAPPY PLACE includes a further version of “Happy Place” featuring guest vocals from longtime friend – and fellow Atlantic recording artist – Jasmine Thompson, streaming now HERE; the track is joined by an official performance video, streaming now via YouTube HERE.
