Steaming Satellites - 'Back From Space' Tour
German News from the Austrian Orbit! The last condensed to the trio (but playing live as a five-formation) Steaming Satellites introduce with "Back From Space" Longplayer number four. More than two years after her last, self-titled album, the journey finally continues through space and time, through Funk & Soul and Rock'n'Roll and this time it is smoothly turned into pop music. The overture to the latest space adventure of the Salzburg celebrates the route: "I'm a little bit undecided and I do not know where to go", they said and decided in a short way for all directions. From here on the only rule is "Let it all flow"! On the titletrack, the keyboard and drums tremble on tiptoe, but quickly band together with the synths before bass and guitars give the necessary boost to the dance floor. It flickers, it sparkles, it groovs and twitches and before you know it, the song is up and away thanks to its fine but groovy melody. "Back From Space" is a feather-light trip to the Indie-Pop Cosmos, the perfect song to eat with Captain Future Cornflakes. And that's just one of so many facets played out here on the 10 tracks. There are songs like lava lamps, where the sounds drip thick and oily from the speakers and those that slowly rise like perfectly formed fluffy cotton candy. Sometimes the guitar goes out, sometimes it becomes uninhibited pop, then the good old psychedelic flares up again. There is this song, as juicy-sweet as a cherry frit strip, next to the massive-rocky sound battleship. And in the end there is this ballad. When the sun came up on "Honey" 's last album, "Back To The Roots" is the cool glittering starry sky. The glue in this cosmic collage is a familiar vibe. While the accumulated pop culture still indulges in the 80ies, the steaming satellites secretly pushed open the side door into the 90s. That it never gets too retro or nostalgic, they are now experts. You've known before Netflix that time is not linear, and they continue to trickle through their musical wormholes in their songs until the listener no longer knows if the past is affecting the future or vice versa. The journey of the steaming satellites continues, the way remains the goal, and in the end there are always the roots. But who says they have to be in the ground?
