Got a nice e-mail during my holiday from Ryan Carroll, singer with Portland-based band Saturna. He asked me to listen to their music, and I didn’t hesitate for too long. And good that was!
Saturna blend various styles in their songs, starting with Space-Rock, adding a bit of Shoegaze and Dream-Pop, and just a hint of Indie-Rock. This results in a very fine mixture that is both fresh and familiar. They even manage to create a proper earhanger with Pop Rocks, which reminded me just a bit of Archive. Really cool tune!
Saturna have just released their first EP, …All Night, available on CD-Baby, ITunes or Amazon. I think it’s worth to listen at least to those songs offered here, and if you like them, you know what to do.
