“Transfigured” by Spirits of Saturn

London-based Indie Rock outfit “Spirits of Saturn” has been making a sizable splash since their debut early last year. Fresh off a countrywide tour, they have brought their synthetic and psychedelic sound to the studio as they release their latest promotional single “Transfigured” today in anticipation of their upcoming Freshman album.

The single starts off with some synthetic, fast-changing keyboard cords that set a calm and relaxing tone for the piece. As the vocals appear, the song quickly sets the tone for a sentimental tale with the opening lyrics “Maybe I was in love with you, maybe I wasn’t too. Whatever it was, I hope that it was true.” With a pensive and percussive flow, the vocalist takes us on a journey of spiritual discovery as they navigate ending a relationship with someone still close to their heart.

In so many ways, this song seems to draw inspiration from earlier work by David Bowie. With staunch similarities in vocal ability, tone, and range from the singer, accompanied by countless shared trademarks from the era, the song seems to transport the listener back in time to a musical age where many of life’s problems could be solved by selecting the right vinyl record.

Between the musical composition, production values, and narrative nuance, Transfigured proves to be an auspicious taste of Spirits of Saturn’s musical abilities early in their career. One can’t help but feel compelled to keep an open ear for what they have planned down the pipeline and how their musical philosophy evolves in the years to come.
