Genre-Agnostic Sydney St. Humain New EP // METADRAMATIC


St. Humain is a genre-agnostic artist based in Sydney, Australia. Born in Singapore, the musician’s colourful, multi-cultural upbringing infuses his sound with a vibrancy like no other. With his music built around honest and personal stories from his own life, his latest EP METADRAMATIC is like reading from his journal, as every song peels back a layer, revealing more and more.

The new EP follows his 2019 debut release, EMOTIONAL SAUNA which was released via Capitol Music Group’s Listen For Pleasure imprint. Taking inspiration from the likes of Dua Lipa, Charlie Puth and Post Malone, METADRAMATIC sees the artist heading towards an interesting intersection between pop, electronic and R&B. The seven-track release which is being distributed in partnership with Paris based artist accelerator Groover Obsessions, with mixing by fellow Sydneysider Simon Cohen (Justin Bieber, Troye Sivan, and mastering by Dale Becker (SZA, Jack Harlow, Doja Cat) in California.

METADRAMATIC is about the feelings we all face in our lives when it comes to relationships — with lovers, friends, and with yourself. It is about the internal conversations that we all have and that St. Humain has had through the past few years. The songwriter shares, “Things are usually more dramatic in our heads and I hope that each song is reflective of that inner drama.”

Focus track “Wanna Talk” is an upbeat pop song with groove, narrating a satirical take on social awkwardness, particularly when it comes to chatting up love interests. Highlighting a self-deprecating realism of how difficult talking to someone you have a thing for, the self-written and self-produced “Wanna Talk” ironically contrasts it with being completely comfortable performing on stage to thousands.

Hoping to inspire listeners to be true to their own feelings, St. Humain reveals, “I think it’s very cool to confess at least to yourself what you’re actually feeling. I think that gives you a level of freedom and helps you somehow gain confidence just to be yourself. And to identify the negative feelings too, I think that’s the first step on the way to overcoming them.”

St. Humain has garnered millions of streams for his music to date, as well as acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Live Nation’s Ones to Watch and Earmilk, to name a few. Accompanying the success of his music, St. Humain also runs his own apparel brand, Emotional Sauna. Named after his debut EP, the brand offers pieces that allow our minds to escape into an aesthetic. It’s pro escapism, by St. Humain: Each release has been paired with a line of apparel to compliment the unique “world” of that song. With limited runs and small batches that will never be reprinted, the musician is offering entirely exclusive pieces. With his undeniably unique creativity and profound artistry flowing through his veins, St. Humain is certain to turn heads this year with METADRAMATIC.
