Satellite Sky

Biography


 

 

Throw together a female drummer that hits the drums like you’re being punched in the face, a singer/guitarist that bleeds rock n roll like he’s giving to the blood bank every time he walks on stage, mix it up with showmanship that would put Cirque de Soleil to shame and you get one serving of indie rock brother/sister duo Satellite Sky.

Satellite Sky is unadulterated rock n roll with a twist of pop. L.A based, Aussie siblings Kim Kicks (drums) & Pete Kicks (vox/gtr) have enough energy to light up a small city. Their catchy riffs & electrifying stage presence, leaves the audience excited, uplifted and wanting more.

Satellite Sky is proudly endorsed by Gretsch Drums, Gibraltar Hardware, Westone, Cympad, Copper Peace, Cleartone Strings, CAD Audio.

Their music can be heard in a variety of commercials, films, trailers, T.V shows, including Spotify/Sony Playstation commercial, ABC/Disney ‘Switched At Birth‘, SYFY channell ‘Being Human‘, music documentary ‘Rockin The Wall’ (PBS), L.A Film Festival Netflix  award winner ‘Almost Kings’ and the NFL’s 2011/12/13 Season campaigns. The single ‘Got This Feeling’, was featured throughout NBC’s and Budweiser’s Summer Olympics commercial campaign.

Anchored by what industry insiders regard as “one of the best rock drummers around”, Satellite Sky has a stage show that leaves audiences with the knowledge they were witness to an extraordinary Rock ‘n Roll experience!

“Satellite Sky pounds out pure unadulterated rock. They definitely look like a rock band, and their energy is incredible. There was so much chemistry between the band members it’s no surprise to learn they are siblings. There appears to be genuine warmth between them and they interact well on stage. Kim Kicks is absolutely lethal on the drums and I’ve never seen anyone drum quite so passionately.” Cambell Klose, Music.com.au

“Bleary Eyed Fashion…I thought this song sounded really cool, I like the idea of it!” Henry Rollins, KCRW.

“Kim Kicks has quickly become known as one of the best rock drummers around, with enough energy to light up a small city, fusing humor and flash with a loud, dominating stage presence…like a female version of the Animal from ‘The Muppets’, with true musicianship.”
