Fake Palms – Satellite [Music Video]

This is a surprise, I thought Fake Palms was done for but I was totally wrong.
The band is back with a new track Satellite which is taken from their upcoming third album Lemons out on September 16, 2022 via Hand Drawn Dracula.
Michael le Riche has been busy with his electro-synth dance pop act Sauna.
Now returning to his comfort level of post-punk jangly guitar rock track on Satellite.

About the track:
“Satellite” is sonically Magazine meets A Flock of Seagulls. Captained by a jagged, muscular guitar part that’s surrounded by an atypical rhythm section it thematically tackles modern technologies, mob mentality and safe havens from doom scrolling.
Speaking about the new album, Michael explains:
“This record is the most direct thing I’ve ever done,” says Le Riche.

“All the distorted guitars playing 16th-note riffs in different time signatures, washes of noise and buried vocals are basically gone.
In their place, we made a record that’s lean and a punch to the gut.
There are still some moments where the guitars get a little tricky but, in general, we tried to be as immediate as possible. The songs are all fairly short and there are almost no extra production tricks.

I was inspired by records like the Dead Boys’ Young, Loud and Snotty and the Buzzcocks’ Another Music in a Different Kitchen.
Maybe because of what was going on in the world at the time, or maybe just as a reaction to the last Fake Palms record – which was flush with production flourishes – it just felt necessary to kick the door down instead of knocking.”
