Saint Rich

The music of Saint Rich can sometimes bring to mind the sunny, laid-back drift of Real Estate; in fact, both bands call New Jersey home, with only a single county separating them. However, while the music may display a summery vibe, Christian Peslak is anything but easygoing on “Officer,” especially in the opening line when he bluntly asks the titular police officers, “Why do you look so mad? You always look so fuckin’ angry/ but you should feel happy, and you should feel good to be king of the neighborhood.” Bitter, frustrated, and maybe just a little mocking, all those feelings are amplified in their new music video which features plenty of stoic, pissed off looking cops often with their faces blurred out. Watch it below, look for the band’s debut album, Beyond The Drone soon, and check out their tour dates below
