By Blurt Staff



London-based Saint Saviour, aka Becky Jones, is prepping to
release her long-playing debut, Union, following a pair of critically acclaimed EPs as
well as an impressive stint as co-writer and de-facto front woman for Groove Armada. The
album is due July 24 on her own Surface Area Records, and you can check out a
stream of lead track “I Call This Home”:

Jones explains that she took her traditional music background
and harnessed it to a burgeoning love of electro and production skills,
inspired by the works of Factory Records and the seminal producer Martin
Hannett, while nodding in the direction of everyone from M.I.A. and Robyn to
Antony Hegarty and Carole King. “I never ever write about my own experience, my
family life or relationships,” said Jones. “I’m not really interested in
badgering on about my own life, I’d rather write about daydreams and the news,
stuff that’s important rather than being self-indulgent.”
