Los Angeles duo Satellite Sky have released the new single “Next Time” available worldwide on all major digital services “Next Time” is the off the duo’s forthcoming EP Magnetize due out on May 5th.
Following the White Stripes garage rock formula of a guitar and drums duo, Satellite Sky features Pete Kicks on guitar and Kim Kicks on drums, but these two are in fact blood related siblings. Satellite Sky is based in Los Angeles by way of Melbourne Australia and came into music in a very non-musical way. Pete went to school for Astrophysics and Astronomy and received and honors degree in Science in Australia. Although science is not generally associated with inspiring rock music, for Satellite Sky, it was the catalyst that helped them develop their sound. According to Pete “Studying topics like Astrophysics and Astronomy really allow you to gain perspective on where you sit in the universe,” which has not only shaped the bands expansive sound but was also the inspiration for the band name, Satellite Sky.
The duos high energy sound and show have gained some famous fans in their current home town of Los Angeles, including KCRW DJ, LA Weekly columnist and punk rock luminary Henry Rollins and KROQ’s Mayor of the Sunset Strip Rodney Bingemheimer. They have spent the last two years touring honing the electricity of their live show, that catches fans eyes and ears in every city.
“Kim Kicks has quickly become known as one of the best rock drummers around, with enough energy to light up a small city, fusing humor and flash with a loud, dominating stage presence… like a female version of the Animal from ‘The Muppets’, with true musicianship.” – The International Music Review
Their sound is influenced by 60’s, 70’s and 80’s era British rock like T.Rex, Bowie and Depeche Mode put through a modern 2015 era blender. They have received comparisons to some of heavy hitting peers including The Kills, Band of Skulls, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Kooks.
“this brother-sister duo has built up a strong repertoire of shaking indie rock numbers that are unashamedly loud and energetic” – the AU Review
Satellite will be touring through the Southwest through March with more dates to follow this Spring leading up to the release of Magnetize.
