Saint Saviour is the project of London-based singer-songwriter and musician Rebecca ‘Becky’ Jones. Six years after In The Seams and a couple of collaboration with Damon Gough aka Badly Drawn Boy and Willy Mason, she announced the release of a new album. Tomorrow Again is out on September 4th. “Breton Stripe” is the first excerpt.
She explains: “I wrote Breton Stripe at a time when I was coming to terms with motherhood and realising that a lot of my preconceptions were based upon myth. The Breton striped top, in my mind, became the symbolic uniform of the new mum, a bit sad and shapeless. Conservative. Conforming. Whilst sitting in a song circle at a ‘stay and play’, sustained only by caffeine and biscuits, I would imagine myself fully losing it and smashing some shit up. Now with hindsight I realise I wasn’t the only one. This song represents my rebirth as a mother on my own terms.”
