Buoyed by that strong start, Saint Raymond now offers fans a fresh taste of his long awaited second album by sharing the new track ‘Love This Way’. Listen HERE.
‘Love This Way’ shows that Saint Raymond’s bright new sound that he introduced with ‘Right Way Round’ is no one-off. It’s a sun-kissed fusion of bold indie hooks and tropical alt-pop rhythms, with his sparkling guitar motifs boosted by punchy synths and a surprising denouement. His topline brims with passion, adding a joyous urgency to lyrics that explore awkward and contradictory emotions.
“The song is about when a relationship doesn’t quite work how it should,” says Saint Raymond, real name Callum Burrows. “But you’re both too scared to let go and you wonder if it’s just how it is and always will be. And whether it’s better to stay in it together in a messed up way.”
‘Love This Way’ is accompanied by a visual created by Franklin & Marchetta. It opens with a tightly focused shot of Saint Raymond’s singing, with more of the backdrop gradually revealed as the camera zooms out. The final reveal, however, suggests that he’s continuing to repeat the same mistakes that he’s singing about. Watch HERE.
