We’re glad to announce that Berlin, Germany-based post-rock/black metal/ambient band Saturn Through My Telescope has released a new single, entitled “If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It.”
Saturn Through My Telescope is an instrumental band blending elements of post-rock, blackgaze, skramz, and ambient music. Using strong contrasts in dynamics and harmony, long tension and release progressions are created, and the “wall of sound” technique is used to envelop the audience in noise. Through the lens of seeking human connection, Saturn Through My Telescope writes deep, jarring, emotional music that demands its listeners to feel.
Saturn Through My Telescope’s debut single, “If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It,” arrives in advance of the band’s upcoming EP, Every Time I Talk to You, It’s Like I Open Up a Part of My Heart and Let You Look Inside, set to be released on April 15th. The EP will appeal to fans of such artists as Deafheaven, This Will Destroy You, Mogwai, We Lost The Sea, and Indian Summer.
Every Time I Talk to You, It’s Like I Open Up a Part of My Heart and Let You Look Inside reflects the relationship between two friends devoted to each other’s happiness—from the intense attachment that comes with the early stages of such a friendship in “If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It” to the lasting love in “Half-Empty Bed.”
Describing the inspiration behind Saturn Through My Telescope’s debut single, Sariana Martinesi (guitar/vocals) says:
“If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It portrays the exact feelings of having finally found someone you can connect with on the deepest emotional level. I wrote this piece for my best friend while struggling with a mental illness. Knowing she was there helped tremendously, but came with the anxiety of not wanting to pester her with my waterfall of emotions, hence the title. Sonically, the quiet and loud sections represent the duality of being with her – feeling completely calm and free to talk about all parts of myself knowing she’s there, but also feeling stressed about revealing too much about myself and screwing up our relationship.”
For first-time listeners, Sariana says, “Listeners can expect a huge wall of sound, quiet/loud dynamics, and all of your typical post-rock/crescendocore elements along with some zesty chord progressions.”
“If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It” begins with washes of atmospheric, sustain-laden electric guitar chords, creating a pleasantly reflective mood. Sonorous bass notes soon join in along with the relaxed, low-key shuffle of the drums as the guitars become amplified in layers, gradually crescendoing yet perpetuating a feeling of serenity as they take the listener through sublime harmonies and soft dissonance.
About 3 minutes in, the track reaches an especially quiet space as each guitar chord fades to near silence, before a dramatic drum shuffle signals a resurgence as a loud distorted guitar enters, its sustained chords harmonizing wonderfully with transcending string- or synth-like layers to create a bright and texturally vibrant wall of sound. A tempo shift then further raises the intensity of track, ultimately bringing the listener to another dynamic drum shuffle—this time signaling the beginning of a quieter closing passage, with sustain-laden guitar chords and subtle ambient textures nicely concluding the track.
“If I Told You I Missed You Every Time I Did, You’d Never Hear The End Of It” is quite an enjoyable listen throughout, showcasing Saturn Through My Telescope’s brilliant songwriting and superb musicianship. I would highly recommend this track to fans of post-rock and ambient music alike.
