We like sounds… From earth and from other places. We are the spacecadet army. We like noise. We like you.
Satalights is an indie Rock & Roll band from Austin TX, imagined and created in 2012 by front man Alexander Scott. Scott started the band as a solo experiment , searching for a balance between electronic and organic sounds. The name came to him one evening while staring up at the stars, but with a twist that reflected his audio engineering background (“SATA” is an abbreviation for the standard interface that connects hard drives to computers). “We are all little bits of information traveling at incredible speeds, orbiting the center of everything,” says Scott. With a solid foundation in post-rock and ambient music, Scott layered elements of pop and rock to make the overall sound more approachable. Austin City Limits executive producer Terry Lickona, a friend and fan, saw potential in the music and connected him with legendary audio producer/engineer Stuart Sullivan, who has worked with icons like Willie Nelson, Butthole Surfers, and Sublime. Together they produced and recorded two songs at Sullivan’s studio, Wire Recording, for Satalights’ debut EP, “Hip America,” released in early 2017.
Three additional songs were recorded at Wire Recording in early summer. The full 5-song EP was released on September 16 at Electric Church in Austin, Texas.
Satalights is a 4 piece outfit which never fails to deliver highly passionate and energetic live shows that keep audiences captivated and leave them speechless! Don’t miss them next time they come into your orbit!
