Chicago’s Santah are hopeful, just like their aptly titled forthcoming EP, You’re Still A Lover. Following the release of their debut LP, White Noise Bed last year (via No Sleep Records), Santah embarked on a journey touring the country extensively & leaving behind their pastoral haunt of Urbana, IL for the urban expanse of Chicago.

Recorded at Chicago’s Pieholden Suite Sound & Chrome Attic, Santah creates & couches themselves in a new sonic home, the 1st warm wave of many to come. This 5 song collection is a response to this virtual limbo & an exploration in new musical territory.

Like the title proclaims, Santah fearlessly commits themselves in their newest batch of songs. If White Noise Bed saw the young band navigating an undulating ocean of heartbreak, You’re Still a Lover sees them sinking head over heels into bliss. Dreamy love songs like “Indigo” & “Teeth” wade into warm waters, showcasing the vocal chemistry between lead singer Stanton McConnell & sister Vivian, now fully acclimated into the group. Sprawling anthems “Springfield,” “North Coast,” + “I Love the Way You Seal a Deal” balance out the slower tunes, all while contributing to the simple self-prescribed reaffirmation: You’re Still a Lover.

Lead single, “Indigo” premieres today, while the quintet prepares to hit the road for a number of dates with Savoir Adore + Royal Canoe. You’re Still A Lover will be available 10.16.
