From the streets of Auckland to across the ditch to Australia, Saint Lane’s life on earth has been anything but a blessing. Born to Fijian and French parents, Lane was raised in and out of cheap motels and homelessness. A life that would begin his manifestation of his own reality - but it wouldn’t be easy.

Assessing the works of Kanye West, Donald Glover, Basquiat, Christopher Nolan and other renaissance figures, as a teenager Lane used art to drift his consciousness away from his troubled surroundings. Lane would construct his own interpretations of these innovators - becoming the blueprint for his own originality.

Zip Code (demo) by Saint Lane

Zip Code is the first taste of the Saint Lane story.

“Zip Code is about senseless violence,” explains Lane. “People hate people simply because they're from a particular area. People rep area codes and spread violence to others from different zip codes. This is happening in Auckland all the time. Somebody dies because of a route by the postal system, forgetting that we are all from the same city. It's further than Auckland too. When I was 18 and living on the Gold Coast I saw a kid stab another kid on a bus because he was from Tweed Heads. We were in Palm Beach. Tweed is 10 minutes away. So if these two boys lived 10 minutes closer to each other they'd be homies? It's so dumb. The song isn't intended to glorify violence or crime and I'm definitely not saying Auckland has more violence than anywhere else in the world. I'm just sharing my own perspective on a situation I know many people are in.”

New from Saint Lane on Sugary Sweet : youtu.be/rxTPgHqj73I

Sugary Sweet is about when my ex girlfriend cheated on me. At the time it was heartbreaking and I think when anybody gets cheated on the easiest thing to do is blame yourself and that's exactly what I did. There's so many "I don't need no man" r&b tunes I realised there's no equivalent for the fellas. This is taking the idea of "am I not good enough" and flipping it to "no I'm fine as hell. I'm sugary sweet and don't need anybody". It's a song for people who have been taken advantage of and now they are saying no, no, no.
