Brooklyn’s latest hip-hop duo, St. Iago, are set to release their first single ‘Never Around’ for their debut album Saint Iago City this Saturday. The brainchild of rapper Caesar and producer Linus, St Iago City aims to tell a tightly woven coming-of-age story through a contemporary hip-hop sound that draws influence from the entire musical spectrum, from house music to old school boom bap.
The lead single, ‘Never Around’, is an experimental track that blends together eerie synths, jazzy vocals, and spoken word to convey the mindset of a man returning home after a long time away. It’s certainly not the catchiest song on the album, but we believe its unique feel will set the stage for the rest of the release schedule. They’ve put months of time and effort into this project and they sincerely hope that it shows in their work. If you enjoy the track, we would be so appreciative if you would share it on your site. A new single will be premiered every Saturday until the entire album drops via listening party in NYC on August 20th. Thanks for your time!
