For St. Lucia, New York is both their home and the place that inspires them most - which is beautifully evident on their latest album, Hyperion.

For their third album, St. Lucia went deep into their feelings, while also approaching the process in a new way (for them, at least). They’ve made an album like a proper band, and with that came the magic that you can only achieve by putting five people in a room. Frontman and chief songwriter, Jean-Philip Grobler, also had a massive life change during the making of Hyperion, due to him becoming a father for the first time. Ken Grand-Pierre linked up with Grobler to discuss the journey of Hyperion, as well as going into how much has changed in the world of St. Lucia.
