St. Humain is four singles into his career, but the Australia-based synth-pop artist is still getting his head around the idea of releasing music even as the new "Fever Vibe," premiering exclusively below, comes out.
"It's scary," the Singapore native tells Billboard. "It's an incredible high making the music and recording the music, and then it's released to the world and you're holding your breath waiting for, 'What are people gonna say? What are people gonna think? Are they gonna like it, hate it?' It's a bundle of emotions. It's a weird, funky place in my mind that can really spiral downwards."
Fortunately, nothing's gone terribly wrong for St. Humain with more than half a million hits for his songs on Spotify and Best of the Week designations for previous songs on Apple Music. Blending urban pop and EDM underpinnings, the spare, loping "Fever Vibe" is among the tracks targeted for his debut EP, which is due out early next year, and mines universal themes about attraction and relationships.
