Saturn & The Sun are a Swedish drone duo made up of Joachim Nordwall and Henrik Rylander. Journey To The Centre Of Your Mind features oppressive, heavy drone pieces the size of planets. The music leaves you feeling like you’ve landed in some post-apocalyptic wasteland. Side One has fiery synths bolted down by bone-crunching bass drone whereas side two begins in a more desolate fashion, building to a crescendo of heavyweight buzzing synth noise.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 25 August 2015
Our latest in peeled and stretched VHS drones comes from crushcrew Saturn and the Sun, two members of the Skull Defekts who earlier this year proved to have no chill at all with the wonderful ‘Harsh Realities, Broken Bones and Skull Tones’. That release peered around the corner of ambient into something close to power electronics, but just about resisted, while this record stretches wavering synth tones endlessly before bringing out the more turgid side of their sound. The title track ruminates above a loyal buffer of bass before screeching into view. The latter half of this track will appeal to fans of the band’s Tapeworm release, and I really hope you’re all doing okay.
Things start to crumble like your microwave falling through a black hole on the flip, where distant rumbles of crackle peruse the silence, rising and ricocheting like the evil twin of a Stars of the Lid record before disappearing again. Before long sounds start to perpetuate underneath, moving at thrice the speed of any other drone that has ever existed for an urgent and misleading atmosphere; it mumbles its way towards a furious synth blast that sounds something like a cloud raining barbed wire. Lovely stuff. I mean it. It’s all lovely.
