Saturations video “Nowhere”

Blair Parkes aka Saturations has got a trippy new video for his track “Nowhere”.

The track is from his recent “Black Circles” EP which is available now for $10 on Bandcamp. Have a sneaky listen below.

Saturations “Black Circles”

Continuing the impromptu survey of recent Christchurch releases we get to long time favourite of The Joint, the one and only Blair Parkes.

Blair is a one man Christchurch musical heritage (have a peek at his discography) and his latest incarnation is as Saturations, gentle, fuzzy, psychedelic lullabies beautifully crafted in New Brighton by the sea.

If we didn’t know better we’d imagine that Blair runs a special cactus plantation and has supernatural vision allowing him to permanently see purple skies, triple rainbows and flying unicorns.

The new Saturations EP “Black Circles” is gently epic. It’s like being wrapped in a big fluffy duvet and then putting yourself in a big slow motion clothes dryer and setting the dial for 14 minutes. We’ve tried to recreate that feeling many times but this is the closest we’ve got. Available now for $10 on Bandcamp. Have a sneaky listen below.

The sights and sounds of Saturations

Just in case we didn’t make ourselves clear on Saturday’s show (and listening to the playback we probably didn’t) the new Saturations album Runaway is now available to purchase over at Bandcamp for NZ$1 per track or $9.90 for all 10. Have a listen below:

Blair Parkes, Mr Saturations himself, has put together videos for three songs, one from the new album and two from last years self-titled EP. They have a permanent home over at NZIndieScene’s YouTube channel but no need to click and search – we’ve posted them below for your ease and comfort.
