Why Aren’t You Listening To: Satellite Hearts

“Why Aren’t You Listening to” is an irregularly-running series at Rock on Philly, spotlighting artists in Philly and beyond that you should be keeping an eye (and ear) out for! This installment focuses on spunky Pennsylvania rock trio Satellite Hearts.

Why you should be listening: You may already be listening to them, actually, as the backing band for Philly songstress/screaming siren Ali Wadsworth. These boys are more than just a backing band, though–their recent win as Indie Rock Band of the Year at the Tri State Indie Awards is only a hint of the great things coming out of the New Hope-based trio whose huge sound belies their size. They’ve got numerous summer performances lined up; but the real reason to tune in now is so that you’re all caught up on Satellite Hearts news by the time their second LP, titled Desire Forces the Flow, drops this July. Given how solidly rocking the band’s work has been so far, and the head-bangingly catchy quality of recent single “Doing Things Right“, the new LP promises to be a wholly necessary addition to your collection.

Sounds like: The talented version of what you wish your brother’s high school garage band had sounded like–the perfect mix of basement band and stadium show, best accompanied by an illicit bottle in a brown paper bag.

Listen to: Latest single “Doing Things Right“, which will have you ready to scream and throw up the rock ‘n roll hand salute in perfect time to the video’s psychedelic, dizzying production.
