St. Spirit are a five-piece band named after the island San Esperito from the cult Xbox game Just Cause. Originating from South London the five nineteen year old friends - Myles McCabe (Guitar and lead vocals); Sam Robson (Guitar and vocals); Ryan Shettle (Keyboards and backing vocals); Joe Reed (Bass guitar and backing vocals) and Josh Taffle (Drums and backing vocals) - formed the band whilst at college last year.
The video for Pigeon was shot by Max McCabe, who shot each band member separately against a green screen to achieve the glitchy effect.
Their debut album was recorded in a living room, by the band and mixed in a garden by world-renowned engineer Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters). The first taste of which is the Pigeon EP released through Distiller Records on the 20th of February 2012.
