Songfacts®:

  • St. Lucia is the project of South African-born, Brooklyn-based musician Jean-Philip Grobler. This sensual synth-based slow burner is a track from their Matter album. Grobler's wife, keyboardist Patti Beranek said of the song:

    "It's sexy and naughty and is really about longing. Maybe it's something secret that you can't tell anyone about. A need to be with somebody, maybe anybody, and feel desired. It's about how simple that need can be, and how simple it sometimes is to satisfy.

    Let's just call it a booty call song that's also about the romance of the booty call. It celebrates a certain feeling that I love in music, or in life in general: the space in between. The pull, the rub, where ying meets yang. A place where there is uncertainty but excitement.

    I love how it builds, I feel like you can get lost in it."
