It’s only been three months since Saint Lane released his well-received second album, CRYING IN THE PORSCHE, but he’s already onto the next project.
The Gold Coast-via-Auckland songwriter and rapper shared his new single, “infinite money glitch”, last week, and it represents quite the sonic swerve from the indie-rap style of his second album.
Produced by Danny Duke, “infinite money glitch” is a pounding drum and bass song, filled with glitchy beats and sardonic rapping. The production is purposefully chaotic, recalling the maximalism of current artists like 100 gecs.
It also recalls Saint Lane’s 2022 single “staring at the sun”, the closing song on his debut album, i thought my name was cursed. Both earned accolades after their release: “staring at the sun was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2023 Gold Coast Music Awards (one of four nominations) and i thought my name was cursed was named Record of the Week by Rolling Stone AU/NZ.
“infinite money glitch” is the first taste of the musician’s upcoming third album, although there’s no release date for it yet.
Following the release of CRYING IN THE PORSCHE (read his track-by-track breakdown here) in May, Saint Lane returned to New Zealand for a homecoming tour, performing in Wellington, Tauranga, and Auckland in support of Bootleg Rascal. He’ll also head to the UK for his first-ever tour of the country later this year.
On Sunday, August 27th, Saint Lane will perform alongside Jaguar Jonze, bella amor, Jacob Lee and more at Bangerz 4 Boobiez, a special show for a good cause. All ticket sales proceeds from the Burleigh Bazaar show will go to breast cancer awareness in young people and to Gold Coast music video director Bianca Hinton (winner of Visual Creative of the Year at last year’s Gold Coast Music Awards), who was diagnosed with breast and lymph node cancer and is currently undergoing intensive treatment.
50% of ticket sales raised will go to The Breast Cancer Network Australia and the other 50% will help cover Hinton’s medical bills and loss of work (donate here).
Saint Lane’s “infinite money glitch” is out now.
