The Satellite is happy to present Air Life for our resident band in May. They will play free shows every Monday all month long.
Taylor Dexter, the 23-year-old drummer for fast-rising L.A. rock bands Hunter Hunted and Body Parts, is in the driver’s seat for Air Life, singing and playing guitar. Dexter has been widely praised as one of L.A.’s best young drummers. But in Air Life, Dexter joins forces with Vicky Nguyen (keys), Brad Babinsk (bass)i, and Brijesh Pandya (drums), to bring some soul music to Silver Lake and beyond.
On their debut single “Tell Me Anything,” with its water-tight soul-jazz groove and unforgettable chorus, Air Life prove themselves to be gifted students of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan, and the song has obvious parallels to contemporaries Hiatus Kaiyote, Toro y Moi and Robert Glasper.
