Premiere: The Smallgoods – “Satellite”


We’re happy to premiere the very melodic “Satellite” from The Smallgoods, who formed in the early 2000s in Melbourne. “Satellite” is a testament to their accessible guitar-driven power-pop, which also infuses aspects of ’60s garage and psychedelia. Over their decade together, The Smallgoods have put out three acclaimed albums and attracted a notable following, so we’re happy to premiere this fluttering, melodic gem. A warming vocal melody in the verses leads to a bright, twangy hook with soaring appeal, the type that entices replays.

The Smallgoods’ new album Lost In The Woods will release in June 2019 through Lost & Lonesome Recording Co. If “Satellite” is any indication, it will be a good one.
