Saint Jude, the moniker of Jude Woodhead has released his first single of the year “Altitude”. He has also announced his second EP Bodies Of Water, set to be released on April 16th via Slow Dance Records. The new single follows on from “Molina” and “Bodies Of Water” released last year.

Reminiscing in those long gone days of spending time with those you care about, Jude gets deeply introspective through a mask of upbeat sonic landscapes.
