​​

‘You Saw Something’

Their 3rd album is available digitally and on vinyl

After returning from Africa late 2016, Satsangi began sessions at Woodbine Street Recording Studio, with John Rivers

 

The aim was to keep the things ‘real’, with live performance essential to the core of the process, to capture the bands ‘character’, ‘personality’ and live energy

 

The tracks making it into the album, demonstrate the breadth of Satsangi’s music influences, melding together a sound that is best described as “world influenced pysch-rock-n-roll'

 

Rolling Stone Magazine interviewed Satsangi and published a full-page feature with a review of their first album ‘No Shoes in Satsang Hall’

 

Their video ‘Iodine’ was broadcast by MTV Iggy in New York, this exposure led to Satsangi becoming featured artists on a groundbreaking primetime show 'MTV Roots’, on MTV India

 

The MTV Roots show introduced new independent global artists of Indian lineage, back into India

 

Satsangi collaborate with video artist Paul Windridge. Their videos are shown internationally on MTV networks (New York, Mumbai), throughout the UK by the BBC, on BBC Big Screens (2010 – 2013), they have also been featured at The Isle of Wight Festival

 

The band’s 2nd album ‘Lick My Lungs’ was released on Mr Babu (New York) and through The Orchard (Sony) in 2016

 

Rolling Stone Magazine

"A wicked bass line, timely sax breaks, and pace-setting rhythm guitar sections. Richard Heath needs special mention for his swivelling spin of a solo on sax. This is a find!"  

 

 

Steve Chandra Savale, Asian Dub Foundation

"Hi Su, listened to 'Iodine' again and I must say it's really wicked. Your track reminds me a bit of Sonic Youth, but with definitely better singing and a tough sax break that reminds me of X-Ray Specs. The whole thing sounds nervy, dislocated and very tense, just the way I like it!"

 

Satsangi are a ‘featured artist’ on The Bobby Friction Show, BBC Asian Network

 

​​Bobby Friction, BBC Asian Network

“I feel I could play that for the next hour or so, but the I’d lose my job, she sounds brilliant her name is Sujatha Menon, she's the lead singer of Satsangi”  

 

Talvin Singh

“Iodine is an awesome song”

 

Tricky

“She’s a star, I want to work with her”

Rolling Stone Magazine

"Menon offers a compelling mash of vocal styles – rewind to Dolores O’Riordan, Grace Slick, Sinead O Connor and fast forward to the likes of Bjork and Karen O and add to that the bizarre temperament of the likes of Tori Amos and Regina Spektor"
