Disc review

Led by vocalist, guitarist and keyboard player Martin St-Germain, Montreal threesome Satori mark their recording debut with this polished five-track EP. Expertly straddling the border between accessibility and complexity and depth, Satori reference new wave, jazz, rock and pop with a reserved, sombre disposition and a pulsating rhythm section. By crafting catchy melodies in a melancholy mood they’ll surely please a wide range of listeners without appearing facile. St-Germain’s thick, dark voice suits the tone perfectly, resulting in an EP that teases us with a flavour reminiscent of the solemn moments of Simple Minds, Talking Heads or Montreal’s own The Box.
