Satellite Stories - Scandinavian Girls

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


When we first head Finnish band Satellite Stories back in October the comparisons we threw in were Friendly Fires, Two Door Cinema Club and Delphic, but mostly Two Door Cinema Club. Now having had the chance to hear a bit more of their lively and energetic indie/pop/dance we're pretty positive we managed to sum them up the first time around. Their album 'Phrases To Break The Ice' was released this month and features that first track, 'Sirens', as well as new single 'Scandinavian Girls', it's sounding like the kind of album that has more excitable energy than a pack of bounding puppies with a load of new squeaky toys.

You could pogo to this, you could dance to this; it's designed to make you move, even if some shy foot-tapping is all you can muster. The pace is frenetic, the guitars are shrill and ringing and the vocals talk of, well, Scandinavian Girls naturally. Basically this is a song and a band who are full of the vigour of youth; you're unlikely to find such boundless vitality as this at a Rolling Stones concert. They have the potential for commercial success too, although the UK may be a bit far away at the moment. If they can build a decent following at home then it's not out of the question though.
