In an interview with Rocksound, Tay Jardine has explained how her new project – SAINTE – with Mike Ferri and Cameron Hurley works.

Relating interview excerpts can be read in full below.

Excerpt #1

SAINTE is essentially my solo project, [Tay explains], “but at the same time it’s not, because we’re doing everything together.”

Excerpt #2

“It’s easier to express yourself alongside people you trust. It’s not like we had a messy break-up and I went off on my own. We Are The In Crowd isn’t even finished – we’re all happy and great friends. Cameron is the one who said, ‘You’d be crazy not to do it!’ But this is exactly where I need to be right now.”

Excerpt #3*

“Last year, I went through a lot of difficult times with my mental health. I was in a really strange and unfamiliar place, and I didn’t know how to fix it. I actually ended up getting therapy after going in the studio, just to talk to a stranger, and I’d suggest it to anyone.”
