Top 20 of 2012: 19. St. Lucia – St. Lucia EP

19. St. Lucia – St. Lucia EP

St. Lucia - St. Lucia EPDespite taking his name from the small Caribbean island, Jean-Philip Grobler isn’t from St. Lucia. But he’s not just a guy trying to sound more exotic, he’s actually from South Africa — and his music has a lot more in common with his home than his name.

Grobler’s debut EP could almost stand on the merit of its closing track “Closer Than This” — absolutely brimming with beautiful synths and euphoric harmonies. But luckily, it doesn’t have to.

The EP is stacked with five other fantastic tracks, all layered with infectious rhythms, intriguing sounds and triumphant vocals. Even at only six tracks, St. Lucia is without a doubt one of the year’s best.
