Listen to the second single from Sadurn's forthcoming LP "Radiator"

Sadurn might just be Philadelphia's best kept musical secret, but not for long. The four-piece recently joined our roster and they're gearing up to release their debut full-length, Radiator, on May 6th. Today the band are sharing Radiator's captivating second single, "golden arm."



Led by vocalist/guitarist Genevieve DeGroot (they/them), Sadurn make extraordinarily affecting indie folk that's easy to love and impossible to shake. With Radiator the band have crafted the rare debut record that feels fully realized in every way, full of warm production and intimate songwriting that follows in the tradition of artists like Gillian Welch and Jason Molina. "golden arm" follows lead single "snake" (which earned attention from the likes of Stereogum, NPR, BrooklynVegan, MTV News, Paste Magazine, BrooklynVegan, and more), and highlights Sadurn's ability to make incredibly stirring music through fragile, stripped-back instrumentation and deeply emotive performances.

LANNDS "lotus deluxe" EP is out today, streaming everywhere now



Stream 'lotus deluxe' on Spotify

LANNDS, the Jacksonville, FL duo is comprised of Rania Woodard, a queer Black woman from Memphis, TN who grew up playing guitar in a Pentecostal church, and Brian Squillace, a North Carolina-born producer. Together they make trippy and dreamy electro-pop that pushes back against the environment it's conceived in, creating progressive art and eschewing all outside influence. The result is intoxicating and wondrous.

Inspired by Woodward’s pop sensibility and emotional approach to songwriting, Squillace’s trippy sonic palette, and their shared commitment to creating progressive art in the deep south, they created their third EP, 'lotus'. Today marks the release of 'lotus deluxe', a re-introduction to the work that served as a turning point for LANNDS.


'lotus deluxe' is intended to serve as an inkling of what’s to come from the duo. “It’s the end of an old cycle of sounds, as we begin pushing into a new direction,” Woodard says. “It’s a peek into the new era of LANNDS, almost like a reinvention.”

Reaffirming Rania’s commitment to pushing boundaries and normalizing people of color in indie music, the material of LANNDS exists on its own plane, merging vocals that make you want to cry with a beat that makes you want to dance.

“‘In the Garden,’ highlights Woodard and Squillace's electronic umami, with atmospheric synths rooted by earthy samples foraged from nature (harmonies provided by birds, auxiliary percussion by tree branches). Buoyed by Woodard's reverb-drenched guitar melodies and tripped-out vocals, ‘In the Garden’ is a richly textured meditation on death and rebirth, and a perfect microdose of LANNDS' euphonious (and increasingly potent) psilocybin.”

Sadurn joins RFC, watch video for first single "Snake"

Sadurn might just be Philadelphia's best kept musical secret, but not for long. The four-piece recently joined the Run For Cover Records roster and today they're announcing their debut full-length, Radiator, due out May 6th. Stream "snake" everywhere | Preorder Radiator



Led by vocalist/guitarist Genevieve DeGroot (they/them), Sadurn make extraordinarily affecting indie folk that's easy to love and impossible to shake. With Radiator the band have crafted the rare debut record that feels fully realized in every way, full of warm production and intimate songwriting that follows in the tradition of artists like Gillian Welch and Jason Molina. The band's first single "snake" is the perfect introduction to everything that makes Sadurn so endearing, starting with fragile strums and DeGroot's aching vocals and building to a stirring peak of layered harmonies and winding guitars.

Sadurn began with DeGroot as a solo endeavor before expanding to a full band in early 2020. The new lineup had their plans put on hold that year but eventually managed to retreat to a secluded cabin in the Poconos to record what would become Radiator. The result is a stunning debut made up of beautiful moments from start to finish. Alternating between stirring full-band arrangements and sparser takes the album's deft production allows DeGroots incredible voice and lyrics to shine through, making for the kind of record that's instantly captivating but also reveals more and more of itself with every listen.

Sadurn will be performing at PhilaMOCA on April 10th with Deer Scout, Shannen Moser, and Ther. More shows to be announced soon.
