Album Notes
If Satellite were painters, they’d be covering canvas with the color of desperation across a topography of loneliness reaching a horizon of hope. Instead, they create songs that explore the inevitable spaces between us, and the experiences that fill them in. The longing for the one we lost, the quiet power of sex, the sting of jealousy and dreams unrealized all weave their way through these melodies.

'Falling Airplanes', the band’s sophomore EP, extends the evolution of creativity begun with the 'Satellite' album exploring a greater depth emotionally, lyrically, and in the arrangement of the songs with the addition of John Takanikos on keyboards and Wesley James on drums.

Gordon Hanley’s sometimes gentle, sometimes strident vocals, deliver the soaring melodies sought by the music. The album is anchored by Zach Dubin’s graceful, yet conversational guitar playing; his focused lines conveying the texture of each story. The potent fabric of John Takanikos’ keyboards and the rhythmic mantras found in the drumming of Wesley James complete the music of yearning, introspective statements, each song exposing a thoughtfully penned diary page.

As natives of Sacramento, California, the members were brought together by common experiences in other bands such as Orisha, Brother, and Killing Buddha. They have drawn comparisons to Coldplay, Radiohead, Keane, and Deathcab for Cutie.

Satellite creates an emotional tapestry available for the listener to wrap themselves in, exposing dark corners and shining a light on spaces that might otherwise go unexplored.
