Our friend & artist – photographer Jelle Sluyts received a wildcard when we asked him to shoot a video for the single “The Germans”. Here’s the result, he had quite an admiration for abandoned places, lowriders & giant heads…
On October 16 2016, we released our new EP digitally on Kinky Star Records from Ghent. Satellite State Brain Drain contains 4 tracks recorded in two studio’s in Antwerp.
The Germans and Defectors were recorded at Studio Jezus and the band will also release them on 7″ vinyl soon. These songs reverberate for quite some time, and this has its consequences. Garage, new wave and postpunk, pulverized into raw, edgy, somewhat uneasy grooves: The Germans might be an ode or even a wink to bands like Devo. The postpunk track Defectors flirts with an anxious bass and bloodcurdling guitars. The other two songs on Satellite State Brain Drain were recorded at Studio Dhadha in Antwerp after the sound engineer there saw the band live in his bar. For The Grey Zone and Chains the threesome chose a live vibe. Chains is a hypnotic tightrope walk – think Goat. The Grey Zone has a deeper punk feel to it with guitar & drum sparks of gloomy postrock pieces. It’s the most punkrock song of Satellite State Brain Drain.
We are living in crazy times where strange things happen and everything is possible. The band hooked on this feeling with the new release.
The digital album is available through Kinky Star Records on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, … or you can stream/download it on Bandcamp.

Hi, we are currently spending time in the studio to record some new songs. We’d love to release a new 7″ single just after summer and keep on working on that full album release.
