Saint Rich

Saint Rich - CMJ Showcase - 2013

by WFUV Staff

Saint Rich's sinewy guitar rock — coincidentally played by four guys as reedy and tall as cattails — is nonchalant, scruffy and playful. The duo of shaggy-haired Steve Marion and baby-faced vocalist Christian Peslak expanded to a quartet for their FUV Live at CMJ set of nine songs, pulled from their debut album Beyond the Drone. From the muscular throes of "Sorry/Sadly" to the insolent shrug of their catchy single, "Officer," Saint Rich managed to meld their New Jersey swagger with a hint of Arctic Monkeys' chic cheek.

The FUV Live at CMJ 2013 showcase last night was everything that we had hoped for -- and more. Thanks to all you who came down to Rockwood Music Hall or joined us online and on the radio to hear one of the first official showcases of this week's CMJ Music Marathon. Missed the broadcast? It will be in the FUV Vault shortly. (We have to sleep sometime.)
