St. Beauty – Not Discuss It – Music Video

The sound that is St. Beauty can be identified as probably one of the most natural and refreshing sounds we’ve heard within the past few years. Since their debut back in 2014 (feel free to correct us if we’re wrong on that specified year) St. Beauty has been bubbling up our playlists and there is no denying their cool aura and talents.
