Bernice – “St. Lucia”

Bernice is the experimental pop alter ego of Toronto’s Robin Dann. She’s a professionally trained vocalist with an MA in music from Goldsmiths, and her band includes frequent Owen Pallett collaborator Thomas Gill. Following 2011’s What Was That and 2015’s One Garden Cassingle, Bernice is getting ready to release her third full-length. “St Lucia,” the album’s hypnotic lead single, is a carefree and expansive experimental pop track. Dann’s translucent, opal vocals are endearing paired with warped synths and sweeping basslines. “St. Lucia” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today, and now you can hear it below.

Bernice’s new album is out next year on Arts & Crafts. Live dates:
