A fearsome foursome of musicians from all over the state of Oklahoma; the Saturday Sirens have successfully polished rawness. From its live debut all the way to the release of the band’s debut full-length album, “The Saturday Sirens,” buzz about the Sirens has not lacked. The band merges garage-twanged guitars over groovy drum patterns to form sub-pop vocal melodies beefing into grunted cry-for-help choruses. Led by front man Seth Anderson’s niche for the stage show, the band’s live energy has helped expand their fan base over time. Its distinct “desert” rock sound has been measured up as a clean, yet original mix-up of bands like Modest Mouse, The Doors, and even the deep, dark vocal style heard from Johnny Cash.
The band has certainly paid its dues, and gets its first real big break with a reserved slot at Wakarusa Music Festival in June of 2011. Saturday Sirens also performed at the growing Norman Music Festival for the second consecutive year, along with other local festivals. The band is set to tour the region in the summer of 2011, promoting their debut full-length album along the way.
