Saturna is really excited about all the noise coming from the UK in regards to Some Delicious Enemy.  Culture Bunker have posted a review giving huge props to the band and their debut record.  Check out the whole review below:

A great new compatriot to the cult of shoegazing BritPop. Saturna come off as heavenly and lush as Ride on “Roll Down” and then show a more BRMC styled rock on “Pop Rocks.” Saturna are clearly influenced by the honor roll of American and British uber-cool bands whose members are never seen without sunglasses or black clothing. This is not an image-first band though, as the album art gives you zero views of the band or their world and features only some generic photos. Maybe it creates more mystery and lets the music do all the talking. Many of the songs show Saturna in a, well, saturnine mood, with slowed down tempos but some songs like the back to back “Springboard” and “Just For Thrills” threaten to create a whole different band that can play fast and still inspire and delight. It’s always good when a band has a layered dynamic and their drone-pop side is a great balance to their shoegazer side. Even better news is that Saturna are from Seattle-Portland corridor; homegrown. Saturna really is a band to keep an eye on, this debut LP sounds like a band on the way up. — Leeds 9/11

I wouldn’t consider yourself successful until you play Boise, Idaho. Great to read that the band has made it over the Atlantic.
