Melbourne electronic project SAATSUMA share their first single of 2017 Isolate.

A collaboration between Memphis Kelly and Cesar Rodrigues, Isolate explores the destructive nature of complacency, and the notion that disengaging from the issues around us will only lead to further decline. Mixed by Dream Kit (Declan Kelly) and mastered by Adam Dempsey. Isolate is the first taste of SAATSUMA’s debut album to be released later this year.

Isolate is SAATSUMA’s third single release following up from Storm and Floating, both of which received praise from local and international tastemakers such as The 405, Acclaim, Broadsheet and features from triple j, 3RRR, FBi Radio including live performances at PBS Studio 5 and Balcony TV.

2016 saw SAATSUMA share stages with Olympia, Dorsal Fins, Vera Blue and Yeo, and showcases at BIGSOUND, Melbourne Music Week and Paradise Music Festival.

On stage, SAATSUMA is fronted by Memphis Kelly and joined by Cesar Rodrigues, Maddy Kelly, Lachlan Stuckey and Andrew Congues. Their captivating live show features analog synths, drums, layered vocals and live sampling. SAATSUMA launch Isolate across three dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.



You know that we’re inclined to isolate
Always seem to look the other way
Said I didn’t know that you were here all along

Caught up in a place of disconnect
Looking for a reason to deflect
Everything I know is changing now you’re gone

Now you’re gonna say that it’s my fault
But I never felt like this before
And I’m in denial that I’ve done anything wrong

Never thought that I would see the end
But I’m getting sick of trying to pretend
That I didn’t know that you were here all along

Burn higher
Nothing left to withdraw
Fuel to the fire
All the signs we ignore
No surprise
It’s getting harder to see
I’ve realised
Nothing’s how it used to be

Now you’re gonna say that it’s my fault
But I never felt like this before
It’s becoming harder to resist
Are we gonna let it end like this

You lost everything
When you refused the truth
Everything I did
Yeah it was all for you
