Drawing inspiration from the likes of Frank Ocean, Solange, and D’Angelo, 26-year-old South Londoner Saint Joshua is releasing his second single from his second EP which also brings an exciting 70s inspired video set for the same-day release.

Crafting a soulful, rhythmic, and cinematic sound immersed in rich harmonies, Saint Joshua has already racked up impressive online numbers with over  700,000 TikTok likes, over 100,000 YouTube views,20,000 monthly listeners, and over 14,000 followers across all social platforms. The anticipated 2nd EP is an exciting move from his debut EP, Pilot, which produces a diverse range of R&B/Soul sounds with pop influences which introduce a colourful representation both sonically and visually.

‘Palo Santo’, his most exciting single yet, was co-written by Joshua himself and collaborator Pearse Macintyre who produced and co-wrote three of the EP tracks.’ Palo Santo’ is a fun and energetic song which feels like a neo-soul reimagined. A multi-layered track, ‘Palo Santo’ is innuendo-filled covering love and fear of commitment and the importance of ridding negativity.

Palo Santo is probably my personal favourite.It was the first song written for the project and it was written a day or so after my 26th birthday.For me ,I think it speaks to my generarion ,how cautous  we are of people and protective we are of ourselves that we may become too csreful and miss out on a good thing.
