With fingersnapping intro, Clay peels off the emotional loneliness and longing people experience during the late hours of the night in their new single “Saint.” Layered with arrhythmic beats, processed vocals, and choir-like choruses, the track has a buoyantly laid-back tone to it that is exhilarating catchy. Despite the midtempo, the trip hop chant makes “Saint” move at a rapid pace without feeling rushed. Stream below:
