“They sound like libertines adrift on the backwaters of Kerala……….....nice” Bobby Friction
"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!" Steve Chandra Savale, Asian Dub Foundation
Satsangi have always resisted giving a label, a tag, to their music, because that might imply restriction where possibilities should remain open. Their direct influences are clearly apparent, the sound they make is a natural extension of who they are and their cultural backgrounds. Indie rock, with punk psychedelia, bumping into Hindu Sanskrit vibes trapped a huge echo dome with reverb laptops, sort of describes it. Maybe not……..but the story goes on!!
