When the first lift off SAINT WKND's Golden Youth EP racked in over 25 million Soundcloud streams, fans of the Munich producer knew he wasn't just pumping out generic radio hits. The scintillating emotion on the production of "Golden" matches the urgency in the vocalist Hoodlem's tone, hooking listeners on a unique marriage of joy and mourning.
Embodying the Golden Youth EP, the first single is a quintessential example of SAINT WKND's alt-electronic approach to the future bass sound. It's comprised of a dizzying collection of exemplary moments where SAINT WKND makes listeners want to smile and cry at the same time. The second single "Make You Mine" leans more in the smiling direction; a perfect head bobbing summer jam with featuring sultry vocals from Boy Matthews. Out on Ultra Records/Nothing Else Matters, the Golden Youth EP has a track for each mood, coasting through genres like it ain't no thang. Even a bit of tasteful tropical house pops up on "Youth," rounding off a captivating EP that hits fans like a ray of sunshine.
