SAINTS - Principle Fighter


Saints are a four-piece indie-alternative band formed in south London. There are three core members: Chris Mason the frontman; Louis Woodward the lead guitarist and Pitt Vitheethum the drummer. The band writes and performs original music that takes influence from all manner of genres from britpop and new wave to alternative rock. The music generally has an uptight nature stemming from influences such as Talking Heads. The sound is structured around complex basslines with jangly guitar riffs and melodic hooks draped over the top. Vocals are often high-pitched and characteristically british, ranging from soft and introspective to aggressive and punky. Overall the songs generally form high energy melodic pieces which serve as the perfect antidote to modern day lo-fi bedroom soft rock.


Lyrically, songs like ‘Principle Fighter’ outline the hardships of student life in London detailing the inequality and hypocrisy of a large number of London students’ experiences. Conversely songs like ‘Psychopath Tango’ or ‘Chaos In the Bathhouse’ create a story in which the character adventures through surreal landscapes. Fundamentally the lyrics focus on witty cynicism with a tendency for introspection.


The band has been consistently gigging in London for the last two years and have played a wide number of venues all over London such as the Amersham Arms, the Notting Hill Arts Club and even the nightclub Proud Embankment. The band focuses on mastery of the live performance always thinking up new ways to vary set for their regularly attending fanbase. With studio experience as well, in the form of a 5 track EP (4 songs of which are currently released on streaming services), this band shows huge promise for the future.


Their latest single Principle Fighter is a searing slice of Indie Punk chronicling our experience of London’s social inequality. The lyrics take the listener on a surreal tour of the city, from the riches of overly privileged students and West-End oligarchs, down to mud dwelling submarines in the Thames and bedraggled foxes in the south. Musically, the song starts with a simple, haunting guitar line, evolving into a paranoid stop-start verse and knife-edge guitar riff into a soaring outro.
