“Satellite Sky pounds out pure unadulterated rock. There’s 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
Kim Kicks (drums) has the explosiveness of Keith Moon (The Who) and the fortitude of Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters).
Pete Kicks (vocals/guitar) has the emotional clarity of Paul Banks (Interpol) with guitar riffs summoning the ingenuity of Mick Jones (The Clash).
The synergy displayed on stage captures the history and telepathy that only siblings can share. Satellite Sky is a blend of Indie Rock, Post Punk Revival and Garage Rock who sit comfortably among contemporaries the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Band Of Skulls, Royal Blood and The Black Keys.
Growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, they began creating music in true rock n roll fashion in the confines of the family garage. After receiving several visits from the police who informed them their raucous rock was reverberating throughout the surrounding neighbourhood, they graduated to jamming in music studios and then live on stage. Now based in Los Angeles, they have enough energy to light up a small city. Their catchy riffs & electrifying stage presence, leaves the audience excited and wanting more.
The brother / sister songwriting team have written for the likes of The NFL, Disney, The Olympics, Budweiser and Playstation. They’ve worked with Grammy award winning producers Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton) and Charles Goodan (Fight Club, Santana).

“Bleary Eyed Fashion…I thought this song sounded really cool, I like the idea of it!” Henry Rollins, KCRW.
“Their infectious power pop-punk manages to be both original and reminiscent of both the best punk (The Clash, etc.) and the melodic sensibilities, energy, and personality of eighties pop. I don’t see much (or any) of this when I see and hear the contemporary acts that come through the Greek” (theater). – Jeff Falk, The Greek Theater
