Alt-Hard Rock group Satellite Citi has released their newest single Pyramid! The new track from this SoCal duo features heavy guitar riffs, soaring vocals, and addresses the disparity between rich and poor in society. The song is from their debut album Negative Space is which will be released on March 5th and is available for pre-order now. Comprised of Anna Gevorkian (vocals/drums) and Shaunt Sulahian (guitars/backing vocals), the band creates their own dynamic sound based on Gevorkian’s melodic vocals and funk rock drumming, combined with Sulahian’s heavy metal guitar artistry. Formed in 2015, Satellite Citi derived their name from the notion of a city where people communicate thoughts through their satellite minds.
Having previously worked on solo projects, the duo teamed with famed rock producer Brad Wood (Placebo, Smashing Pumpkins) to create their forthcoming debut EP. Negative Space is inspired thematically by societal issues such as political corruption, battling internal demons, and struggling to find solace. “The underlying theme in our music would be overcoming negative energy, hence the EP title, Negative Space” Gevorkian explains. “We want our music to encourage people to stand up when they’ve fallen”. Despite the EP’s raw, rock & roll energy and growling guitars, it’s introspective themes remain sensitive. The inspiring video for the lead single Undead (directed by Powell Robinson and Patrick Young) follows a despondent LGBTQ youth after they’ve been kicked out of their home and endured continual harassment from their peers. The video takes an unexpected turn and shows Satellite Citi joining forces with the youth and defeating every metaphor in their path, united as a team. After headlining high profile venues across Los Angeles and being featured in publications such as Huffington Post and Out magazine, the band is ready to spread their inspiration across the globe in 2018.
