Glaswegian alt-pop duo SAINT PHNX – comprised of brothers Stevie and Al Jukes – have released their new music video for their song “Death of Me.” The song is part of the band’s 2-track bundle that was released through DDMN via AWAL in November, and represents darkness, while its counterpart “Deadmen” represents the light. The new video continues the story from “Deadmen,” which received over 1 million views in its first week earlier this month.
“‘Death of Me’ (dark side) goes hand in hand with ‘Deadmen,’ although it’s talking about a personal experience rather than a relationship,” Stevie Jukes explains. “During the album process I got sick and ended up going to hospital. The song is inspired by being obsessed with something so much that it kills you.”
SAINT PHNX fuse anthemic hooks and classic guitar riffs with electronic and hip-hop inspired beats. Comparisons are often drawn to Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, and Bastille, but it’s fair to say that the band have created a unique lane with the start of this new campaign. Although the tracks are deeply personal, it’s clear there is a wider meaning as their lyrics will burrow into the mind as much as their persistent riffs and stadium-ready choruses. And the negativity they encountered at the beginning of their musical careers has done nothing to deter them from chasing their dream of playing the biggest stages possible. They are aiming for the top writing big songs with stadium ready productions – all made in their shared studio in the outskirts of Glasgow in a former trade union building.
The band have been on the path to success since their debut release 18 months ago – amassing over 25 million streams as an independent artist, peaking at #20 in the global Shazam charts with their track “King,” selling out their own tour across Europe, supporting Imagine Dragons, and performing on many festival stages including a coveted spot at Reading and Leeds.
