All that time alone inside the house is giving us all some time to reflect and remember, and that’s what SATURN been doing for the past few weeks. “I have been so precious with spreading all my work so far. Literally, hiding songs, photo shoots, shows. Doing shows and going over stories, but never really sharing my personal experience,” they said. PAPER. “The quarantine inspired me to look back fondly and I wanted to share.”
On Thursday, they made their first independent release: Venus Virgo. The EP is an archive project that was previously released on Soundcloud – now, with an additional track entitled “Sulfur” – featuring songs from various phases of a music and cinema project in constant movement and evolution. SATURN has also always made a point of being a sound and visual artist. And so they decided to release a mini musical documentary to accompany their bop “Sing It For The Boy”.
According to the artist, the video is a love letter to his friends and supporters (including bookers and streamers). This shows a specific period of his life – the summer when his most important lover died so far, they launched their first musical project, moved to LA, toured with dates in South Korea and Mexico and opened a show for Azealia Banks.
“This was such a crazy accumulation for what has been the biggest growth period of my life so far. These months have been full of good times in the face of difficulties,” said SATURN. “He tested my character and I really discovered the power of my joy. Most of the images show me a smile that is something I would like to share. I appreciate all the good times and I think the document reflects that.”
The artist chose “Sing It For The Boy” because of its meaning. “I pat myself on the back for surviving without [my self-love, care, and confidence], “the artist said about the song.” I take it back. I am proud of myself for hiding it long enough to survive. My light now shines everywhere I am. I take the day of life at a time when managing my extreme goals “.
