Saturna are pleased to have been included in the March Mix from the After Hours blog along with R.E.M., Lightspeed Champion, and M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel’s new project She & Him. They also announced Saturna’s upcoming tour with Bob Mould and stated that Saturna, “Brings a deliciously dirty rock with a touch of a rhythmic psychedelia. Often compared with Jesus and Mary Chain and Lush,” and “is starting to get that all important and well-deserved buzz.”
Big thanks to Kyra Reed, on the Tunecore blog for using Saturna as an example of the right way for a band to utilize their blog. We appreciate the kind words and recommend that if you’re a band interested in more information on new media and marketing that you check out KyraReed.com and Tunecore.

Thanks to Sonic Slang for writing about Saturna’s upcoming tour with Bob Mould. They also posted an mp3 of Pop Rocks and said it was, “A groovy slice of indie pop that we’re diggin’ so far. Think dream/psych in the vein of Dandy Warhols and you’re on the right track.”
Pop Rocks also won the MP3 Jackpot this week. They called Pop Rocks, “A psych pop treasure,” and added “Saturna is wildly crafting songs in the vein of The Stone Roses, drenched with teenage power pop sensibility that’s screaming for some of that fancy broadcasting compression.“

In the last couple of weeks Saturna has been getting radio airplay and press in advance of our tour with Bob Mould. Jay Ziegler of Consequence of Sound wrote a nice article about Some Delicious Enemy and says Saturna has, “swirling shoegaze and dreamy pop textures large enough to fill a football field.”
Altrok radio included Saturna song Pop Rocks in their latest Tuesday showcase along with artists like Depeche Mode, The Cure and Tones on Tail among many others.
Thanks to Thomas Bell, Saturna also made Ricks Picks on CD Hotlist, a website that recommends new releases to libraries. Some Delicious Enemy was featured along with new albums from Hot Chip, U2, Justice and more.
And the always entertaining Jules got into the spirit, providing Pop Rocks as a soundbite on her blog 🙂
