‘Bodies Of Water’ is the latest offering from Saint Jude following on from his widely praised single ‘Keep The Light Inside The House’, released on Slow Dance Records in March 2020. Forest Hill based bedroom producer Jude Woodhead first assumed his pseudonym in 2019 with the release of his debut eponymous EP. The track was one of the first Woodhead wrote that had lyrics, and he speaks of the rawness that inspired it. “I think I was maybe wallowing a bit too hard at the time that I wrote it, but I didn't want to replace it with something that might smother the emotion. It's a really interesting thing to produce a song that you wrote a long time ago, you can either try and recreate the feeling that you had when you wrote it, to try and most truthfully capture what you were feeling at the time, or you can approach the song with the benefit of hindsight, and try and put things right in a way that you couldn't at the time. I tried to support the lyrics as if I still believed them, even if I don't, which was an interesting exercise.” Although lyrically the track is reflective, Woodhead’s sonic brilliance drives the track with a fast-paced, percussion-led energy. Saint Jude has an appeal that reaches between alternative and indie scenes, electronic and club scenes and also remains accessible, and danceable, as a piece of pop music. This track is the first to have a US campaign that will bring Saint Jude to a new American audience With ‘Keep The Light Inside The House’ drawing attention from publications such as Hypebeast and Line of Best Fit and finding solid support from radio presenters Pete Tong and Lauren Laverne, Woodhead’s next release is eagerly anticipated. God Is In The TV Zine named Saint Jude one of their Ones To Watch 2020, alongside other up and coming alternative artists like Sorry and Porridge Radio. It was added to a multitude of tastemaker playlists like Domino Soundsystem, Rough Trade Recommends, Dazed Magazine, Hypebeast, RÜFÜS and Tiësto.
It's a song that really pulls you in, the shimmering reflections of light providing moments of stark beauty. - Clash
