Common Saints - StarchildLABEL: Starsonics
Pairing dreamy falsetto vocals on a smooth, languid groove that sounds like an undiscovered hip hop sample, 'Starchild' is the new EP by Common Saints.
This will fly out the door, don’t be the one to miss it once it’s gone!It follow's last year's underground hit EP 'Idol Eyes', which saw strong support from DJs across BBC 6 Music - including Gilles Peterson, Huey Morgan, Nemone, Stuart Maconie and Tom Ravenscroft - as well as Amazing Radio, Bandcamp Weekly, KCRW, Radio X, Soho Radio and Worldwide FM. The original 500 vinyl copies of the EP have changed hands for £75 on Discogs, while the title track has upwards of two million streams.
Having produced for the likes of BTS, Jorja Smith and Maverick Sabre in his South London studio; Common Saints is Charlie J Perry's personal project, inspired by warm '70s production, crafted arrangements and natural grooves. 'Starchild' further explores these areas through fusions of psychedelic soul & funk and Balearic tendencies, all tended by memorable songwriting and production nous.
"Starchild is kinda a letter to younger generations" explains Charlie. "Are we hardwired to be programmed? Like, is change possible? I've lived with that track for a while now and I always go back to it. It came very naturally, and to this day I get new meanings for it almost every time I listen to it.
