SPIRITS OF SATURN

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM SPIRITS OF SATURN

Spirits of Saturn have crash-landed onto the synth-pop scene with their latest single, ‘Transfigured’, and trust us when we say, the extraterrestrial vibes are real. Hailing from London, these cosmic crusaders have taken inspiration from the likes of New Order and Human League, and boy, do they wear their influences on their glittering, intergalactic sleeves.

After causing a ruckus with two sold-out debut shows in the heart of London, Spirits of Saturn strapped on their space helmets and joined forces with Temples for a UK support tour. Venues like Koko, Brudenell Social Club, and Band on the Wall became their musical playgrounds, and it seems they’ve brought some of that cosmic energy back with them.

‘Transfigured’ is a thumping synth-pop ballad that teleports you straight to a neon-drenched, retro-futuristic dance floor. Imagine the best bits of New Order’s danceable beats and the hypnotic allure of Human League’s synths, all stirred up in a cosmic cauldron.

‘Transfigured’ wraps you in a sonic cocoon of nostalgia. The synthesizer and string melodies blend together seamlessly, that transports you to a time when shoulder pads were in, and the only acceptable dance move involved a hint of robotic precision.

But, dear reader, while we’re all aboard the spacecraft for this synth-pop joyride, it’s worth noting that ‘Transfigured’ doesn’t necessarily blaze new trails in the genre. It’s more like a warp-speed journey through familiar territories – a bit like a sonic TARDIS that takes you to the heart of the ’80s.

However, let’s not be too hard on Spirits of Saturn. After all, not everyone can reinvent the wheel, or in their case, the synth-pop banger. They’ve mastered the art of homage, and ‘Transfigured’ is a love letter to an era when synthesizers ruled the airwaves and hairspray consumption was at an all-time high.

So, if you’re in the mood for a retro-futuristic dance party that feels like a cosmic disco in the heart of London, Spirits of Saturn’s ‘Transfigured’ is your boarding pass. Just be sure to pack your neon jumpsuit and dancing shoes – this interstellar journey is bound to make you groove like it’s 1984.
