“Scottish brothers Stevie & Alan Jukes have hit the ground running” – The Sun
The SAINT PHNX brothers had this to say about the inspirational video:
“We wanted to have a theme that ran in parallel with what the song is about personally. Boxing was the perfect fit. It’s about how the world can seem a lonely place with all elements against you but through raw persistence, focus, determination and belief then you can achieve greatness. The video was directed by fellow Scott Drew John Barnes, a director who encompasses the rarest of gifts: an ability to make unique and engaging films telling a story many of us can relate to.”
Hailing from WISHAW the band consists of brothers STEVIE & AL JUKES. Growing up in an industrial town on the outskirts of Glasgow made them rise and conquer through the music industry. They have been making waves ever since emerging during the summer with their debut single Reload – a 3-minute dose of anthemic hooks and stadium-ready choruses that perfectly showcases their innate skill for engaging song-writing and signals their vast ambition for the project.
The band sold out their highly anticipated live debut show at Glasgow’s Nice’N’Sleazy in July and, in support of ‘King’, are set to play at the infamous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut at the end of December.
