Singapore born, Sydney based artist St. Humain is destined to create big waves in the pop industry. Having already featured on Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ and Spotify’s ‘Pop For Life’ playlists with a further impressive 860 thousand Spotify streams, it is safe to say St. Humain is well on his way to success. It is no surprise that he has caught the eye of Billboard, whom have released the artist’s newest single: ‘Fever Vibe’.
Upon listening to ‘Fever Vibe’ I felt uplifted. It is an upbeat single which creates chilled out and happy vibes. The electro-bop beats play to the feeling of freedom and young love. It is the kind of song I can imagine people listening to in retrospect, to revive memories of a happy time. Mixed by Simon Cohen, (Justin Bieber, Starley) and mastered by Leon Zervos (Amy Shark, Maroon 5, Troye Sivan) I do not doubt the success this single will yield. It is a romantic single, however it breaks away from the conventions of the classic love song. Instead, St Humain creates a fresh sound which makes you want to fall in love through dancing and singing along. Another special element of ‘Fever Vibe’ is that it is not season-specific. It can be played at any time and will still give off the same uplifting vibes. This is a sign of a talented singer, songwriter and producer who understands how to adapt to many a mood.
With heavy focus on the technicality of the beat, ‘Fever Vibe’ is a flexible single;
it could be easily fit into a chilled Sunday afternoon or danced to in a popular nightclub. St Humain himself is genre-agnostic and believes in his music having honest storytelling: “My songs are always about something in my personal life and I don’t write what I can’t relate to, because I think that at the end of the day we’re all human and are in need of some real authentic connections. Honesty is the motto here.”
Overall, St Humain is one talented artist. His ability to understand and produce a single for everyone to listen to is something to be praised. I have no doubt we shall be treated to more of his music very soon.
