Satellite Hearts
Satellite Hearts
Combining both the raw, unpolished, and unapologetic sound of today, with the soul of true classic rock; Satellite Hearts is the distinctive sound of Justin Pellecchia (guitar, vocals, and harmonica), Lucas Rinz (bass, vocals) and Keaton Thandi (drums, percussion, and vocals). They provide an eclectic amount of influences with unwavering honesty.

“Trying to pinpoint Satellite Hearts’ sound is like running a marathon without any training - it’s simply foolish. You can say the Philly three-piece exudes the heart and soul of classic rock, but that doesn’t give props to the strands of clap-along sing-song acousto-punk strewn throughout. You can say that they’re pure rock ‘n’ roll, but that doesn’t do justice to the rough-hewn climb of ’80s indie underground raggedly sewn into their sonic fabric.” -Annamarya Scaccia of NYC’s Deli Magazine

“Between the percussive clashing and lead singer Justin Pellecchia’s sixties psych-rock vocals, Satellite Hearts are what I imagine a Lou Reed-fronted Steppenwolf would sound like.” -Julie Miller of XPN’s The Key

“[They sound like] The Clash infused with unpolished 80’s brat punk that trekked through the 60’s while flirting with bell-bottomed psychedelics and heavy rock n’ roll jives.” -Jerk Magazine
The Silent Signals
The Silent Signals
The Silent Signals sprung from the ashes of a former Philadelphia club scene band in 2008. It's three members, Michael Greto, Christopher Miller and Matthew Tenaglia felt compelled to change the stagnant musical landscape that surrounded them and began by breaking off pieces of their inspirations and molding them into their own unique sound. Creatively hiding your sources isn't an easy task, but with influences ranging from rock to electronic to soul and classical they had more than enough material to forge an album worthy of attention.

Obvious influences include Peter Gabriel and Radiohead. But if you listen closely enough you will also hear an organic, earthy Depeche Mode and even some early Cure. All in all, it's a strong combination of indie rock and technology, complete with passionate and thoughtful lyrics. With tunes about love, loss, addiction and heartache, they are a band to which anyone can relate. The Silent Signals released their first LP An eMotion Picture in 2011. Popular tracks like "Auria" and "Lucky No.11* are still making waves across the internet.

They recently released the single "Caught in the Current", a song inspired by Wisconsin artist Nina Schmidt's painting "Nothing Worth Having Is Easy to Hold" and are currently in the studio working on the follow-up to An eMotion Picture.
