Trendsetter is so excited to be working with alt-pop duo SAINT PHNX on the release of their new video for their latest song “Death of Me.”
“Death of Me” comes off of the duo’s groundbreaking 2-track bundle, released through DDMN via AWAL in November. The track joins its counterpart, “Deadmen,” which also features on the bundle.
The video represents light and continues the story of “Deadmen,” which represents darkness. The two are polar opposites, but together, they curate a unique feel for the band’s debut release.
“‘Death of Me’ (dark side) goes hand in hand with ‘Deadmen,’ although it’s talking about a personal experience rather than a relationship,” Stevie Jukes explains. “During the album process I got sick and ended up going to hospital. The song is inspired by being obsessed with something so much that it kills you.”
The video for “Deadmen” received over 1 million views in its first week earlier this, and “Death of Me” is sure to follow suit.
SAINT PHNX fuse anthemic hooks and classic guitar riffs with electronic and hip-hop inspired beats. Comparisons are often drawn to Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, and Bastille, but it’s fair to say that the band have created a unique lane with the start of this new campaign. Although the tracks are deeply personal, it’s clear there is a wider meaning as their lyrics will burrow into the mind as much as their persistent riffs and stadium-ready choruses. And the negativity they encountered at the beginning of their musical careers has done nothing to deter them from chasing their dream of playing the biggest stages possible. They are aiming for the top writing big songs with stadium ready productions – all made in their shared studio in the outskirts of Glasgow in a former trade union building.
The band have been on the path to success since their debut release 18 months ago – amassing over 25 million streams as an independent artist, peaking at #20 in the global Shazam charts with their track “King,” selling out their own tour across Europe, supporting Imagine Dragons, and performing on many festival stages including a coveted spot at Reading and Leeds.
