Let’s say you’re at a bar, a DJ is spinning brit-rock and you’re having a good time. You’d normally expect to hear ‘Rocks‘ by Primal Scream. But the DJ can’t find that disc. Instead, he/she puts on Pop Rocks by Saturna. You’re just as satisfied.
They’re a band from Portland, OR, music in the vein of BRMC, Secret Machines, Spiritualized and The Dandy Warhols. The new material (off Some Delicious Enemy) is equal parts ‘fuzzy, driving, melodic guitar‘ and psychedelia. Tons of layers, tip-top production. And apparently getting some love on mtv.
