A sultry, dark and immersive adventure lies in wait on 'Aquarius', the new single from alt-pop artist st.james.
'Aquarius' crawls and undulates with glossy production and immersive layers, with st.James effortlessly sweeping and skipping vocally amongst hip hop, electronic and alt-pop undertones.
"I listened to a lot of The Beatles when I was writing this, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band!
"I think I also subconsciously got the intensity of the vocals from listening to Halsey's 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power' album as well. But I wanted it to feel futuristic, with a little hint of some vintage energy."
After a stint on Netflix's 'Byron Baes' last year, st.James previous releases in 2022 were the optimistic, heartfelt tunes 'Liars' and 'Restless Life'.
Here, st.James has penned some fun, light-hearted horoscopes. What a darl!

Aries Mar 21-April 19
The Cancer sun is throwing light onto your family and home life. Cleansing the home with some sage is the best way to bring some new life and new energy into your creative space.

Channel your anger into something creative, perhaps try taking a painting class, one of the ones with wine, of course!
Taurus April 20-May 20
This is a busy month for you, Taurus! The middle of this month sees Mercury and the sun connecting with Neptune, bringing inspiration and creativity. Now is the time to immerse yourself in something new! If you're feeling restless, go and see some live art. If you're still feeling restless, create some art. Whether it's painting or writing, express yourself in art form and life's challenges will find a way of falling away.
Gemini May 21-June 21
During this full moon, Venus makes a supportive connection with Saturn, signalling stability and connection but also opening you up for experimentation.

You only live once, and now is the time to do it.
Cancer June 22-July 22

Mercury and the Sun mingle towards the end of this month, giving you the emotional range to explore your own self expression.
Leo July 23-Aug 22
It's Cancer season, and it's calling you to escape your everyday life. Explore your subconscious to find what your heart desires.

Virgo Aug 23-Sep 22
The Sun is shining its light on your friendship circle during Cancer season, dear Virgo.

During this season you will be connecting with and reaffirming bonds with your friends. What better way to express your friendship than to go and see some live music, drink tequila shots and request 'Sweet Caroline' to the band until they give in and play it.
Libra Sep 23-Oct 23
With the sun entering Leo later this month, this is the time to reflect on your future, your dreams and goals and wishes.
