After a mini-break, EP of the Week is back and better than ever, and this time our top pick for the week is SDX, which is the debut EP by French crooner Saint DX (Aurélien Hamm). The singer, writer and producer reflects on love, obsession and everything in-between across the EP's nine tracks.

On SDX, Saint DX draws upon various influences, including the soundtrack to The Big Blue, to the likes of Sade, Mylène Farmer and Better Person.

Throughout each of the tracks, he captures the intricacies of modern love and the various ways it can eat you up and consume you.

There's the groovy and enticing opener 'Prime of Your Life', which has an insatiable bassline. SDX also has sultry moments like his previous track 'Xphanie' — his first single singing in his mother tongue of French. As the EP progresses, we're met by Saint DX's tender and sensitive side with songs such as 'La même', his cover 'Take My Breath Away', 'First Fantasy' and 'Prince Is Dead', all tugging at your heartstrings. SDX ends as beautifully as it started with his fulfilling and satisfying closer 'Regrets'.

Head on a journey with Saint DX and his majestic debut EP SDX below.
