'Saint Lo', released this week, is the first take of Washington's latest direction. Though she has previously used her full name in her music, she lets go of what you would usually expect with her sound and experiments with the wonderings from her imagination.
'Saint Lo' presents an electronic dreamland with shimmering instrumentals. Despite the lushness of the instrumental, her words are dark and brooding. The track was written and recorded in L.A. with producers Eric J Dubowsky (Flume, Chet Faker) and Dave Hammer (Thundamentals). In a statement, Washington says "“It’s sort of a meditation on how much we give to love, and how much we take from each other – the brutality and the vampiric nature of all emotional exchanges.”
