Introducing the A-Side (SonicAluzion) EP by Smashing Satellites (@SmashSatellites)





Canadian rocker Salvatore Costa broadcasts his visions through his new quartet Smashing Satellites.  Their EP A-Side (SonicAluzion) draws heavily from Salvatore’s influences such as The Doors, Nirvana, and fellow Canadians Our Lady Peace, and arrives at a sound that is as much retro 70s/80s progressive-styled rock like Styx, Gowan, or Rush as it is 90’s post-grunge like Stone Temple Pilots, The Tea Party, and Moist.  Salvatore has a big, distinctive but versatile voice which can be heard at its best through the very accessible “Calm Me Down” or “Hounds” (video below), or my favourites “Taste Of Fame” and next single “Waterfall”.  The songs are alternately bold and loud or quiet and passionate.  Using a self-admitted unconventional approach and thought process, Salvatore and Smashing Satellites succeed with vibrant melodies that are both intricate and powerful.  Be sure to check out SonicAluzion on iTunes and watch for Smashing Satellites on tour in your area soon.

Smashing Satellites shares the bill with In My Coma and Moist on Saturday, November 22 at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto.
