Glasgow based duo Saint Phnx reveals their brand new single “Happy place” featured along with an official video
Founded as SAINT PHNX in 2016, the duo – composed by Stevie and Alan Jukes – has spent much of the past decade in the studio or on the road, lighting up festivals and traveling alongside like-minded artists YUNGBLUD, Lewis Capaldi and Imagine Dragons.
Just as SAINT PHNX began to rise, the Jukes brothers’ dad was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a terminal lung condition. Though doctors encouraged a move to a warmer climate, he instead built a house in Scotland’s isolated Tinto Hills, turning the room above the garage into a studio where Stevie and Alan could write, record, and remain close to him. It was there that SAINT PHNX wrote and recorded “Happy Place” as their dad cheered them on.
Stevie Jukes says: “One day, I came into the house, and my dad was sitting on the couch. He was looking out of the window at the beautiful hills. He had peace of mind in the house he created. It was his happy place. Our happy place is making music in the studio he built for us. After this pandemic, everybody needs that. We want you to find yours.”
They played the nostalgic, stadium sized “Happy Place,” when their father was sent to intensive care, instilling him with pride before he passed away. Now SAINT PHNX are proud to share their song with the world.
Alan adds: “We strive to make everybody feel good. If we can lift you up in any way possible, that’s our main goal.”
