Saturday Sun rises over county

DORSET'S Saturday Sun, who are managed by Cornwall's own Julian Able, return to the county for more dates this week following the favourable critical reception given to their Orixé album.

The band, who played The Nightjar, Truro, last night with Lily & Meg and Sam Powell, continue their tour at the New Inn, Tywardreath, tonight and Carriers, Bude, on Friday, before hitting Watermans, Falmouth, on Saturday.

Saturday Sun achieved their first success with the release of their debut EP Seagull. The title track won a coveted Q Track of the Day, a place on the soundtrack of House At The End Of The Street and an incredible 600,000 plays on Spotify and 200,000 views on YouTube.

Orixé, their long-awaited full-length follow-up, is drenched in the band's "delicate but demanding sound". Their name, taken from the Nick Drake song, invites comparisons, but Saturday Sun's mix of folk, rock and psychedelia lays more with John Martyn or the early work of Pink Floyd. They create a sound that is as mesmerising and intricate plugged-in as it is stripped back and acoustic.
