ashville alternative rock quartet Satellite released their debut full-length album "Calling Birds" last month via Descendant Records/Sony Music.
The album, produced by guitar player and songwriter Mitch Allan (remember him in great band SR-71?), features 11 tracks, including the 6 songs that formed 2010's debut EP "Ring The Bells".
"Calling-Birds is meant to reference the one sound in the night that reminds you the sun's coming up. Like maybe the songs point out something making life a little easier, and, that in more ways than not, we aren't facing it alone," main songwriter/lead singer Steven McMorran explains.
If you listened to that EP, you already know what to expect from "Calling Birds". If it's the first time you read of Satellite, I can tell you they sound like a mix of One Republic, Snow Patrol, Kings Of Leon and Coldplay with a touch of Americana and US rootsy rock: a great sound enriched by haunting melodies and heartfelt lyrics.
