City of Satellites
City of Satellites' hook-laden, cinematically-inspired music showcases an effortless and heavily seductive blend of acoustic, electronic and human sounds; shimmering guitars and vaporous synthesizer tapestries creep in like the darkness across a desolate metropolis; iceladen drums snap and pulse, often breaking songs apart only to rebuild them like some kind of experimental toy robot. All the while, syrupy sweet, abstract vocal passages are whispered to the listener, intoxicating melodies behaving like bridges throughout a beautiful cosmic playground.
City of Satellites is a dream pop/shoegaze trio whose members are divided geographically between Australia and the USA.
