Self-proclaimed purveyors of "Southern indie rock," Saunter's debut LP Excuses picks up where their 2003 EP left off, delivering steamy, ribald horn-and-guitar-based burners from the South. Saunter keeps the lid on tight... - The Independent Weekly - Raleigh, NC

Wow. Saunter rules. They play Southern Indie rock and have been doing so for about 9 years. Raleigh, NC's longest running completely unknown original band has big news for you. Saunter releases their third album, "Bustin' Loose" in October 2007. Luscious three part harmonies blend over top a tight rhythm section, chunky guitar & key riffs, and Raleigh's best rock saxophone. 6 tracks of absolute tastiness. Saunter also puts on a damn fine performance complete with karate-chop-leg-kicks, theremin solos, and the elusive warble (a.k.a. handmonica).

About Saunter: Having cut their teeth for years in the collegiate scene, their musicianship and songwriting have evolved in new and better directions at each turn. They're relishing the warm reception of "Bustin' Loose" by local radio DJ's at 96Rock & WKNC 88.1FM (by far NC's dopest college station - ever). The last album, Excuses, moved 2500 copies, got great radio and podcast airtime around the country.

A legend in their own minds, this is your chance to be that dude/dudette that gets to say "I saw Saunter in Oh-7 before they were opening for Elton John, bro. Did you know they were big in Sweden at the time?" Say this to any band member at the show and they'll buy you a beer. Come out. Bring the posse.
