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!"
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!"
Satsangi are a ‘featured artist’ on The Bobby Friction Show, BBC Asian Network
Bobby Friction, BBC Asian Network
“I feel I could play that for the next hour or so, but the I’d lose my job, she sounds brilliant her name is Sujatha Menon, she's the lead singer of Satsangi”
“Iodine is an awesome song”
“She’s a star, I want to work with her”
Rolling Stone Magazine
"Menon offers a compelling mash of vocal styles – rewind to Dolores O’Riordan, Grace Slick, Sinead O Connor and fast forward to the likes of Bjork and Karen O and add to that the bizarre temperament of the likes of Tori Amos and Regina Spektor"
