STRFKR Releases Official Video For Satellite (Watch)

Electro-synth-pop group, STRFKR has just released the official video for their song Satellite (see above). The Portland-based group will return to The Top Hat on June 29th.

The song, from the group’s 2016 album Being No One, Going Nowhere, was written by Joshua Hodges (lead vocals) on a retreat at Joshua Tree. Influenced by the solitude of the retreat, lyrics ache with the feeling of being insignificant: a theme on the album. Lonely lyrics are colored by a bouncy bassline, major-chord resolution in the chorus, and a retro, dreamy production value.

The video emulates the lyrical-melodic contrast through a seemingly innocent, whimsical sci-fi story with a darker ending. The girl (in the video) starts by playing with virtual reality, but ends with her soul (represented by a small black creature) being eaten out of a takeout box. Additionally, the piece is done all in stop-motion.

Tickets for STRFKR’s June 29th performance in Missoula with the Reptalians are still available online, over the phone at (877) 987-6487, or at The Top Hat’s box office in downtown Missoula. More information on the event can be found here.
