Tuesday Tip-Off: The Earth Satellites

LA’s The Earth Satellites have been perfecting their classic rock influenced sound for years, and such diligence pays off with Feral Hearts. The album is a swaggery mix of Petty, Springsteen and Ocasek with a dash of roots Americana by way of Laurel Canyon. What makes the band stand out from other acts who draw from those same sources is the strength of the songwriting. Band members Rick Wood and Sugar Ransom’s duet “Wounded Heart” could be a lost Petty/Nicks number and “Cold Shoulder” checks so many boxes of what makes a truly great Springsteen song that we’re sure Brian Fallon will be mad jealous when he hears it. If you’re a fan of lyrically driven rock n’ roll this album will feel like a homecoming. Dropping on February 14th, 2021 you can pre-order it now here. Check out “Wounded Heart” and “Cold Shoulder” below.
