Hidden Shoal artist profile: City of Satellites

City of Satellites
Imagine a Venn diagram with one circle that says 'dream pop' and another that says 'shoegaze rock'. The area where they overlap is a wonderful place. That place is City of Satellites. It's all about synthesis - between electronic beats and live drums; between shimmering keyboards and breathy vocals; between post-rock guitar sounds and rich basswork. The result is dizzyingly beautiful and futuristic music that is perfectly suited to a range of visuals - and has already been heard in episodes of Australian drama Offspring.

The band have released a stunningly expansive EP called The Spook and debut album Machine Is My Animal, from which the single 'BMX' is taken:

The title track of their debut album is included as part of my alt.pop/rock compilation on Soundcloud:
