“...an indie alt-pop dream.” - The Line of Best Fit
Dundee’s finest ST. MARTiiNS return with their beguiling new single ur so pretty, out now via Big Indie Records.
ur so pretty is a truly idiosyncratic slice of alt-pop, combining celestial electronic soundscapes and languid guitar riffs with Katie Lynch’s distinctive, hugely expressive vocals, the whole sound drifting effortlessly between joy and melancholy. As in all their music, the duo combine their love of electronica, jazz, indie and pop to create something entirely their own.
Having first met when they were twelve, Katie and Mark Johnston’ have seen their lives drift inexorably closer together over the years. Their unity of purpose, self-belief and their ability to grow outside the mainstream has given their music a purity and resonance that means that anyone who discovers them inevitably feels a huge sense of discovery. ST. MARTiiNS have already gained the attention of the likes of Radio X’s John Kennedy and BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway. Previous single do ur words also spent two weeks on the Spotify Viral 20 playlist, as well as making the New Music Friday and Hot New Bands playlists amongst numerous others. Following in its footsteps, latest single ur so pretty has also made Spotify's New Music Friday UK playlist amongst others. They have also received praise from the likes of DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, The Skinny and The Sunday Times, to name but a few.
With ur so pretty, ST. MARTiiNS continue to display a magisterial, intrinsic and deep understanding of the power of great pop music.
