Wishing you could drown out all the static we come across throughout the day and spend it instead on a cerebral journey to find a more blissful state of mind? Well, if you are, local LA duo Alice Bloom have the background song for such an exploration with their debut single “Satellite.”
“Satellite is about finding our internal voice and the good people that exist through even the darkest of galaxies. When we choose to escape the orbit of self-serving people we can instead find our own authentic path. This is the first song we ever wrote together,” say bandmates Flannery Maney and Pietro Milanesi.
From Maney’s simple vocals to the tune’s mellow and pleasant tempo, “Satellite” is a calming and easy song to digest as it captures elements of pop, indie and just little hint of Jazz.
Letting go of preconceived notions, the lyrics that celebrates the band’s realization that the unknown they were afraid of was actually a portal to a better point of view. They also play to some of our very basic intrinsic needs to find balance and inner peace.
Alice Bloom is a post-Covid-19 quarantine band and was formed during LA’s mandatory shelter-at-home/self-isolation orders that prompted the couple to start a songwriting competition with each other. Flannery is also a screenwriter and actress, while Pietro is a film and television composer. They produce, write, and mix all of their music independently from home.
With one single out, the band aims to release their debut EP this fall. To catch more from Alice Bloom, make sure to follow them on Instagram.
