7 NIGHTS A WEEK
Saturday Sun hail from Dorset and make music that is at once delicate and demanding. Their name, taken from the Nick Drake song, will wield comparisons, but Saturday Sun’s mix of folk, rock and psychedelia lays more with John Martyn or the early work of Pink Floyd.
In April, they released their debut EP Seagull of four tracks on Lazy Butterfly Records. The title track won a coveted Q Track of the Day and a place on the soundtrack of forthcoming film House on the End of the Street. Alex Hedley, Billy Merrick, Allan Varnfield and Tobias Fitton create a sound that is as mesmerising and intricate plugged-in as it is stripped back and acoustic. It’s a sound that hints of americana, folk, rock, blues, even grunge influences.
All melted into a sound that is pure Saturday Sun.
