Saint Etienne are an English band from London, formed in 1990. The band consists of Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs. They became associated with the UK's indie dance scene in the 1990s, beginning with the release of their debut album Foxbase Alpha in 1991. Their work has been described as uniting 1990s club culture with 1960s pop and other disparate influences. The name of the band come from the French football club of AS Saint-Étienne.

The songs' glide and swirl make the band’s coming-of-age reflections seem all the more poignant. Tracks like DJ, Tonight", and The Last Days of Disco seamlessly blend memories of young romance and musical infatuation

Words and Music, the first full studio album in an aeon from Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, is a masterclass of pop theory and practice in perfect harmony, often within the same song. Saint Etienne once laid down the challenge "Do you believe in magic?" That magic lies in the way that changes between chords, and the interplay between allusions and associations can have an almost narcotic effect. Words and Music is these magicians' perfect show-and-tell. More about Circuses Magic Music Narcotics Pop Stage Magic.

Saint Etienne have grappled with maturity before, particularly in the stylish ife of 2002's Finisterre, but Words and Music excels by realizing that there's no inherent conflict between youthful enthusiasm and adult perspective, if you put them together the right way. Part of what's appealing about Words and Music is the way it maintains a contemporary Top 40 sheen without lowering itself to pandering, but it isn't all uptempo dance-pop. Past Saint Etienne albums have paid loving homage to London. This time, as the album art reinforces, they've wisely realized their real home town is global pop culture. In other words, they're your neighbors.

Saint Etienne's eighth record, Words and Music by Saint Etienne, is centered on a theme that has been part of their music since the group began. This half of the album speaks to the power of music to sweep you away, fill you with hope and love, and make everything all right. To that end, the group also succeeds and crafts some of its finest dancefloor-filling moments ever; Sarah Cracknell has never sounded better than on the flashy "The Last Days of Disco," "DJ" has a nice callback to the melody of "Like a Motorway," and "Haunted Jukebox" sports a mid-'60s soul groove and some lushly lovely backing vocals.
