Saturday, Monday's new four track EP, The Ocean was released worldwide February 27th, 2013 via Despotz Records.

PRESS QUOTES

"The stripped back track, combined with Julia Spada’s vocals, is the perfect remedy to the string of overly produced summer anthems. The accompanying video is a lesson in what simplicity and great cinematography can accomplish, following a group of teens going about their teenage business in slow-motion." - Listen Before You Buy

"Nowadays this sort of club-aware electronic soul isn’t just a British phenomenon — listen to 'Headshake' by the Swedish producer Saturday, Monday with the yelping singer Julia Spada — but it’s notably un-American." - The New York Times

"Swedish newcomer Saturday, Monday aka Ludvig Parment delivers a fantastic production offering plenty of unexpected moments, with featuring vocalist Julia Spada providing an incandescent performance, showing an obvious natural sensibility to squeeze hooks that are both memorable and interesting into every available crevice." - Record of the Day

Reviews

Back in 2012 producer Ludvig Parment released a couple of tracks by the names of “The Fall” and “The Slow and Sloppy Journey of the Little Rhino” which ultimately was the start of something beautiful; Saturday, Monday. A producer for Despotz Records turned musician (Ludvig) started a journey that even he knew not the destination. This EP is the start of many new songs by Ludwig that will become a full length album. With the hauntingly alluring vocals of Julia Spada, the post-Dubstep genre creation of Ludvig’s “The Ocean” EP is an electronic gem.

The EP is very well produced, matched equally with the vocals of Spada. Being recognized more for her songwriting abilities, Spada hasn’t had very many opportunities to showcase her vocal potency. “The Ocean” will surely be what springboards her. Without her, the EP wouldn’t have captivated the ears and mind as much as it did. Her raw hypnotic vocals help make each piece distinct in it’s own way.

It’s easy to see how they determined the name of the EP. The vocals paired with the occasional entrance of a violin or a well placed piano made the EP sound like a continuous electric ocean—sometimes slow, docile, and tame with undertones of power, and then a rushing, commanding presence that captivates. Each song acts as a different mood of the ocean, mimicking the beauty and tranquility of the face of the waters.

Their song “Amends Withdrawal” starts with a basic electro drum beat followed by an eerie vocal section that continues throughout. This basic intro is built upon with synthesizers, some electro bass and the enticing vocals of Spada. This song pulls you with the let-ups, breaks, stops and pauses, so convincing that it seems like the track is going to end.

Electronic music has swept the world by storm, most artists falling under the genre  of Dubstep. While Saturday, Monday does indeed have a divine array of electronic touch, “The Ocean” EP has breached into a post-Dubstep type of feel. It has broken through the grimy, melody-lacking bass driven zaniness that is Dubstep and created a divine, just as driven without the noise, melodic standard. The music is simple but keeps you on your toes with rhythm switching choruses, and developing melodies that interact very fluidly.

Saturday, Monday is the moniker of Swedish producer Ludvig Parment. For his latest track “The Ocean,” he joined together with vocalist Julia Spada to create a wintry mix of minimalist beats and pristine pop production.  Blending orchestral strings with synth-pop tendencies, Parment brings out the beating heart from within the music, and “The Ocean” feels majestic and intimate simultaneously, with the inherent inclusivity of the best pop songs of the past few decades

After watching the fun music video for “Headshake” last year, producer Saturday, Monday has returned with visuals for “The Ocean”. This single also features the light, poetic vocals of Julia Spada–a collaboration that works wonderfully. Directed by Positive Negative and filmed on Öland Island in the Baltic Sea, the video and song illustrates an emotionally intense story between two parting lovers.
