Song of the Day! Satellite Stories – Helsinki Art Scene

Satellite Stories are not apart of the Helsinki Art Scene in Oulu, Finiland

Jump on in! The water feels just fine with these Finnish indie party rockers. That nice familiar feeling that you are getting from Helsinki Art Scene is mostly likely coming from the heavy influence Two Door Cinema Club has on the band. (And if you’re unfamiliar with the fast paced indie dance jams of Two Door Cinema Club you need to go educate yourself now.) Satellite Stories are a four-piece that make songs for your enjoyment and partying, not hidden metaphors and emotional stories for you to waste your time delving into. It is all about getting the most out life with a smile whilst you dance to their upbeat indie rockery. The band released Satellite Stories – Promo EP last november which includes Helsinki Art Scene and two other fun filled tracks, but no word on a full album release yet. However, the band is set to digitally release a new single June 14th so I might just have to come back and vist these guys again then.


Song of the Day! Walk The Moon – Anna Sun

Walk The Moon rattle this house apart from Cincinnati, Ohio

Music Video: Walk The Moon – Anna Sun

The amount of passion Walk The Moon puts into their music is just so immense. You can hear this dedicated intensity in their single Anna Sun. What starts off as a slow ballad of calling out quickly turns into a full-on indie rock dance scene, complete with a Keytar and everything! This song entrances my imagination and makes me want to go out and celebrate being alive with a smile, and any band that can do that has me sold. Walk The Moon independently put out their debut album I Want! I Want! last November and have expressed intentions of putting out another record soon. From what I’ve listened to from I Want! I Want! I can tell you its full of a variety of different song pacing, but the major reoccurring theme you can look forward to is beautiful synth driven dance rock. Believe me when I tell you Walk The Moon is pretty much my favorite discovery this month.
