The PR scraps that came my way along with 'Saturday' promise that it captures the mindset of the British public, as they pine for the best night of summer weekend'. Unusually for PR piffle this almost hits the nail on the head.

'Saturday's hopeful intro with its lovely melodic guitar riffs and vocalist Bridget Hugo's very English vocals are full of promise and sunshine and very reminiscent of Dubstar. Coupled with the sweet lyrics which murmur out lazy balmy anticipation of the weekend this actually does fill you wit a little hope that 'Saturday' is around the corner.

The continuous background woo-oo-oos are obviously catchy and beg an embarrassing unconscious singalong on the bus (I know I will be doing so) and the gentle tempo and plucky melody do indeed make it perfect for daydreaming of an innocent sunny Saturday afternoon with a loved one. Slowly cycling down sun-dappled country lanes, wearing floral dresses and straw hats, snogging in the long grass, that sort of thing.

The only criticism I could make is that it is slightly drippy and not really and truly emotive but it's so dreamy and wistful that it does make you sigh and smile and its lack of bollocks cease to matter.

A charming sugar-sweet 3 mins of guitar pop. I look forward to hearing more. Lovely stuff that could become quite boring.
