Finland’s Satellite Stories are one of the country’s biggest indie exports.
The numbers alone are staggering: 60 million global streams, and more than 300 headline shows spread across 17 countries and three different continents.
Blessed with near inexhaustible energy supplies, the band stormed back into the studio last year, working on a clutch of new songs.
Fifth studio album ‘Cut Out The Lights’ will be released on September 14th, with Satellite Stories also preparing a huge clutch of live shows.
The Finnish band are ready to share sparkling new song ‘Coupons’, with Esa Mankinen describing the song as “three minutes 14 seconds of pure energetic indie pop…”
‘Coupons’ is a story about dedication and how it all can be taken away in seconds. Like coupons lying on the floor, sometimes the value goes to waste. But what makes it all worth while is the time that you spent to get where you are, even if sometimes you’ve had to start all over again from the scratch, you have a journey and that is what keeps you grounded.
It’s like every song we make has a similar story of trying different things until it finally, at the last possible moment comes together, and we look each other in amazement, like “We really did this?”
In a way, short stories of our career and experiences.
A fizzing, cracking, explosive return, ‘Coupons’ is ridiculously infectious, with those gossamer synths rattling against an insistent, incessant guitar line.
Tune in now.
