After being dubbed a top pick on Michelle Obama’s podcast playlist, SoCal vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist St. Panther stakes her claim as an artist to watch with the release of These Days, her transformative debut EP under Ricky Reed’s Nice Life Recording Company and Nate Mercereau’s How So Records.
These Days is a unique and captivating journey through loss, vulnerability, growth, faith, and resilience. The 6-track project’s old-meets-new production and writing style parallels St. Panther’s turbulent transitional period as a rapidly rising artist while simultaneously healing fresh wounds.
One of the highlights is B.O.M.B.. The song features unique melodies, sublime vocals, cool grooves, catchy sounds, and solid hooks. Every element has a purpose.
The artist also released a music video for B.O.M.B., which is short for back on my bullshit. She explains that with this record she wanted to voice that feeling of hoping to break through the barriers (aka old habits) in a romantic relationship, which ended up being a song about holding yourself accountable. Directed by Lili Peper, the video makes it a play on all the things we habitually fall into doing – a gentle reminder that it’s usually where growth is least expected that it’s the most possible.
St. Panther’s music connects with people. She speaks the language of art. B.O.M.B. deserves to be heard. Fantastic work. Perfect for today.
