Acclaimed alt-pop brother duo SAINT PHNX have unveiled their new EP, HAPPY PLACE, available now HERE.

“Happy place EP is a collection of songs that we have written in tribute to our Dad,” SAINT PHNX shares. “It’s a journey of emotions on how we felt and how he felt during the last 6 months of his life. We hope this collection of songs can help others through difficult times and give them some sort of comfort. We want to tell the world his story and make him and our mum proud. This is for him.
A touching ode to the Glasgow, Scotland-based duo’s late father, the EP arrived last summer and quickly struck a chord with listeners. The track is currently ascending at UK radio while boasting over 8M worldwide streams and top 20 placement on Shazam charts around the world. Along with its popular success, “Happy Place” has been met by widespread support from friends and fellow artists like Yungblud, Lewis Capaldi, Catie Turner, and Jamie Miller, as well as many publications including American Songwriter, which wrote, “With a palpably uplifting energy, ‘Happy Place’ has an incredibly unique vibe to it. With such a distinctive message of hope, grounded by the profound sadness of losing a parent, the song boasts an incredibly complex emotional palette, marrying the joys and sorrows of life into a single, beautiful expression.”
In addition, Happy Place includes a further version of the immensely moving track also featuring guest vocals from longtime friend – and fellow Atlantic recording artist – Jasmine Thompson, streaming now HERE; the track was joined by an official performance video, streaming now HERE.
SAINT PHNX – who recently supported Yungblud for two spectacular shows at their hometown’s famed Glasgow Barrowlands – will celebrate HAPPY PLACE with a range of live dates, including an eagerly awaited UK and European spring headline tour.
