STRFKR – Satellite


Portland-based outfit STRFKR return with Satellite, another glowing preview of their eagerly-anticipated forthcoming album Being No One, Going Nowhere, due out November 4 on Polyvinyl.

STRFKR’s Joshua Hodges explains, “This was one of the first songs written for the new album. I wrote it pretty quickly, sitting on my bed during a hot spell in LA, waiting for the sun to go down so I could go outside. The original version I wrote was kind of a different vibe. It was more Synth heavy and driving. I wanted it to feel a bit more dance-able and fun so I changed the instrumentation, added guitar and live drums, and took out a bunch of synths. Hodges ads, “To me, the lyrics are kind of about morality and whether it’s subjective and imposed or natural. I think at the time I was just kind of thinking a lot about shame and how useless that generally is for us, especially in regard to our sexuality. That’s one of the themes of the album, and I think this song kind of fits into that narrative.”
