Surreal Saturday (on a Sunday): Saturn Boy - Dream Koala
Dream Koala possesses a familiar quality, along the same vein of XX’s Coexist, but with a newness that hasn’t been tainted by exes or massive radio play. “Saturn Boy” feels like our little cozy, environmentally conscious secret. Dream Koala echoes the type of philosophical questions that sound best when the moon is shining bright.
The space theme is heavy. Plenty of stars and galaxies paint a rather dim picture. “Saturn Boy” is relatable, because most of us have felt alienated. Yet, the song’s gravity defying lightness allows us to feel and be more aware of our impact on the planet without being completely overwhelmed. That is pretty otherworldly, if you ask me.
