There’s just one possibility to create something initial and unique in one and the same thing – it’s art. An expressive but as-well euphonic voice that tells you entirely about a generation, a nation or just one boy’s experience of what it means to grow up… Thereby the sextet succeeds in accompanying the audience to highest euphoria. Meanwhile they bring you down to your knees to hold a melodramatic gun barrel to your head. Based on a mixture of playful sounds paired with the rough edges of life THE SATELLITE YEAR present emotionality and ambition.
