After the success their debut self-titled album, Saint Jude took some time out to refine their sound. They’ve tinkered and polished, lyric by refrain by harmony, to create a richer, livelier, more soulful tone, which was captured over a week in the stately Victorian country manor, Stokes Roft towards the end of Summer.
Only You I Need sees a full-flight Saint Jude articulate a rich and focused sound, with the swirling guitar and organ combination paying reverence to the tapered five-piece gospel harmonies which have become synonymous with their live show.
Shamelessly wearing a rhythm and soul tapestry of influences on their sleeves, Saint Jude again draw heavily from the Muscle Shoals school of writing for rhythm. Fronted by the considerately resonant voice of Brooke Penrose, Only You I Need displays a newfound certainty in a band dubbed ‘one of the most exciting new bands we’ve heard this year’ by The Age.
