London-based synthwave/space disco band Spirits Of Saturn have dropped their cover of Roxy Music’s song “Do The Strand“.
The original song features on Roxy Music’s 1973 album For Your Pleasure.
Spirits of Saturn are “four cosmic explorers hailing from every corner of the galaxy”. Ignited by Soul from London indie pop band Superorganism, the project features Float’s Edmund Short on vocal, with disco grooves courtesy of keys and bass from Scott Docherty and the metronomic drumming of Elian Lion.
Attempting to create a “glittery flame of hope amidst our present-day discontent”, the band carve out synth-drenched disco-tinged tunes, with the contrast of Edmund’s baritone and Soul’s tenor offering euphoric melodies and darker lyrical content over a hypnotic, krautrock beat.
Their catchy debut single “Feelings Agency”, came out back in April, and the follow-up ‘100mph’, will be out on September 8.
Watch the live video session for Sun Made Sessions below, filmed at Gallery Cafe, Bethnal Green, London on 20.06.23.
The band have also announced they will be touring with Temples around the UK, starting off at Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 7th Sept. Tickets here.
