“Iodine is an awesome song”

Iodine was released on independent psych label Northern Star Records.

The band signed with the Mr Babu label (Mumbai/New York) with their videos broadcast in USA and India on MTV.  Satsangi became featured artists for the groundbreaking show 'MTV Roots’ on MTV India.

 

Steve Chandra Savale, Asian Dub Foundation

"Hi Su, listened to 'Iodine' again and I must say it's really wicked. Your track reminds me a bit of Sonic Youth, but with definitely better singing and a tough sax break that reminds me of X-Ray Specs. The whole thing sounds nervy, dislocated and very tense, just the way I like it!"

 

Rolling Stone Magazine reviewed the bands debut album ‘No Shoes in Satsang Hall’

 

Rolling Stone Magazine

"A wicked bass line, timely sax breaks, and pace-setting rhythm guitar sections. Richard Heath needs special mention for his swivelling spin of a solo on sax. This is a find!"  

 

Satsangi released 'Lick My Lungs' a CD/DVD double album on Mr Babu in 2016 and toured to Africa/Zambia

 

Bobby Friction, BBC Asian Network
