It still surprises me when some of my fellow Londoners ask me who Santino Le Saint is. The 21 year-old Brixton-born singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist is one of the best emerging acts on the planet, he crafts dark R&B, merging sultry instrumentation with a thread of melancholy that draws influence from artists such as Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean and Jimi Hendrix.
Ahead of his headline gig at the iconic late night venue XOYO in the trendy East London area of Shoreditch, Santino has shared another captivating single titled “Call You When I Get Home” produced by Sidney Swift. It’s a dark romantic tale inspired by a late night drunken phone call. Built over a hard hitting moody production and accompanied by another signature electric guitar solo, the rising star has all the right tools to become a global star.

“This was written in LA about my girlfriend who was in London. We were arguing because I didn’t call her enough. I was out there for work and she thought I was out partying and to be honest sometimes I was. One night I left her I drunk a voicemail. I turned it into this song. This is only the second song I’ve released which I didn’t produce myself, working with Sidney was a real experience, the guy is a genius and we really wanted to make something that felt cinematic and epic” — he says.
