The Satellite Presents
Spare Parts for Broken Hearts is a melodic, 3 piece, Alternative/Grunge band fronted by vocalist/ guitar player, Sarah Green (SG). In 2010, SG returned to Los Angeles from a summer touring with the Van's Warped tour and founded SP/BH in a downtown rehearsal space. They are expected to release new music, fall of 2018.
Ever So Android is based on the timeless synergy between it's principal members, multi-instrumentalist/programmer Drew M and vocalist Hope. Hope's vocals are an opulent blend of soul, blues and punk; an unexpected combination that produces a hypnotic result. Drew's soundscapes are confident and lush: chunky, dynamic guitars and synths sawing away under lean, fierce, electronic beats. Their cohesive style is expansive enough to include throttling anthems, dystopian dance epics, and full-on electro-punk bashers.
Iress (formerly Iris) makes the kind of music that submerges you into another world. Heavy. Dark. Electric. Doom-gaze guitars are layered over ethereal vocals that metamorphose into anguished screams, and are accented by cinematic drums and dancing bass lines. Formed in 2010 on the outskirts of LA, Iress has slowly built itself into a commanding machine of sound, steadily gaining steam and momentum. Their powerful live performances and raw talent have caught on like wildfire, with their heavy, melancholic sound and cathedral-like vocals drawing comparisons to bands such as True Widow, King Woman, Chelsea Wolfe, and Emma Ruth Rundle. The release of their EP Prey at the end of 2015 forged a new chapter in Iress’ story. The band spent most of last year opening for high-caliber bands such as Sunflower Bean, Chon, and Summer Twins, and performing at festivals, including Echo Park Rising. They were named as a band-not-to-be-missed by the LA Times. This year, Iress will be releasing their second EP, Soaked, via PLAG Records. This EP sees the band delving even further into the haunting, massive sounds that they explored in their earlier material. With DoLA naming them one of LA’s Bands to Watch for 2017, and plans for a West Coast tour in the works, Iress is a band you will not want to miss.
