Saturday Sun, considered by many as the flagship band of Swanage have made some major changes recently, as they draw a line under their acclaimed work and launch an exciting new project “AThousandFurs”.

Now a three-piece consisting of Saturday Sun’s core members Alex, Bill & Allan, the new outfit promises to retain some of the trademark sounds that caught the attention of major national publications such as The Guardian, Q Magazine, and the Financial Times; with some new influences thrown in. They’re currently recording with John Cornfield who’s previous clients include Supergrass, Robert Plant, Stone Roses, Oasis and Muse – so expect big things from your favourite local band as they embark on a slightly direct musical direction.


So far they have revealed only a short and atmospheric teaser video so we’ll need to wait a little longer before we really hear what’s up their sleeves – however they’ve wasted no time in embarking on a seven date tour of the UK with the rising Post/Rock “cinema masters” Nordic Giants. You will be able to catch them at one of the following dates in May.
