The Saturns – ‘I’ll Be Alright’ (mp3)
I’m a late convert to the church of The Saturns. I really only discovered their joyous blues and 70s inspired rock and roll a couple of weeks ago when I put on their debut EP Here’s The Saturns. If you’re sick of Jet peddling the retro vibe and killing it for every other band because they saturated the market, then perhaps you should throw on The Saturns to restore your faith in bands who are looking into the past for inspiration, and doing it with joie de vivre.
Vocalist Nathan Carr Daniel Holdsworth has the perfect rock voice, and in ‘I Could Be The One’ he shows it off with some great vocal howls in a song based around the 12 bar blues and it doesn’t sound stale at all. ‘Ease My Mind’ has guitars that twang along; the whole song having a Rolling Stones kinda vibe.
It’s all about fun for this Sydney five piece who burst out of your stereo with excitement, energy and uncontrollable foot-tapping rhymths.
