‘Feel Like Drugs’ is the first single from Santino Le Saint’s upcoming EP and it’s a hazy affair with lush RnB and sensual vocals. The 21-year-old artist from Brixton, London is a natural multi-instrumentalist who arrived on the music scene with his 2018 EP ‘Xeno’ which incorporated old soul and rock influences.
Santino has been in the studio working with huge production talens 070 Be Heard and House of Pharaohs’ Sam Wise as well as producers Sidney Swift (Beyoncé, Future), Blueysport (Khalid, 6lack, Post Malone) and Dayyon Alexander (Ella Mai).
The visuals for ‘Feel Like Drugs’ reflect the dreaminess of the song with flashing images, neon lights and show Santino working on his music in a slightly mind-bending way. He says, “Feel Like Drugs” is a true story about infatuation and love feeling like being drugged up, before experiencing withdrawal-like symptoms from losing something you once had. Me and the Cloud X team filmed the visual with filmmaker Harry Lindley – it was inspired classic drug scenes from “Trainspotting” and Gaspar Noé’s “Into the Void“.
There is a lot to look forward to from this rising artist with his new EP and a collaboration with the fashion designer Julien Macdonald – Santino Le Saint is on an exciting, creative path.
