Sauna Youth - Transmitters

It’s that Friday of the year that for many people means the last working day before Christmas, a big fat pay check, and an evening of celebrations that can generate exuberance and fear in equal measure.

To mark the occasion, our last pre-weekend Track of the Day before the festivities arrive is a raucous piece of rock ‘n’ roll that could soundtrack an all-out apocalypse just as easily as it could a night out on the town.

We’ve yet to track down the proper recording of this one, but thanks to the omniscient powers of Marc Riley and his BBC 6Music show, here is an even scuzzier cut of Sauna Youth and their new track ‘Transmitters’.

It’s yet another accolade for frontman Lindsay Corstorphine, who took the title a couple of weeks ago with his other project Primitive Parts.

This time around, he expresses his love for a simpler era. “I wanna take your call from a Transmitter”, he yells. Take us back!
