Melbourne electronic project SAATSUMA reveal their latest single, 'Floating'.

A collaboration between Memphis Kelly, Cesar Rodrigues and Joel Ma, SAATSUMA have produced a soulful electronic track that explores themes of insomnia and solitude. Floating was mixed by collaborator Dream Kit (Declan Kelly) and mastered by Lachlan Carrick.

The accompanying video, conceptualised by Ajay Jennings, Caitlin Shannon, Anna Downie, Memphis Kelly and Tom Chapman, further explores the theme of insomnia through movement and dance, demonstrating the interplay between falling asleep and freeing oneself from grief and anxiety.

'Floating' follows the debut single, 'Storm', which was premiered on triple j Home & Hosed and saw support from Double J, 3RRR, PBS and FBi Radio.

On stage, SAATSUMA are a five-piece live act, fronted by Memphis Kelly and joined by Cesar Rodrigues, Maddy Kelly, Lachlan Stuckey and Andrew Congues. Following a sold out performance at Shebeen and securing support slots for Olympia, Dorsal Fins and Milwuakee Banks, the band will launch 'Floating' at The Toff in Town, Melbourne on July 9th.
