Scottish duo st. martiins helps us digest unexpected reality that life can throw on us with their new single “saw the moon,” a woozy melody of shimmering guitar strings, silvery vocals, and pillowy drum kicks with mood undertones. The track taps into the anxiety that we when things go completely opposite of what we imagined. Hit play:

According to singer Katie Lynch, “it was written when we lived in Glasgow, in fact, it was the only thing we wrote in that time. Moving there was supposed to be an energising, creative experience for us but it became the opposite. The imagery in the song reflects how close we felt to our own creativity but then feeling it was out of reach. It is an angsty song, probably the last song that was derived from our teenage minds.”
