"Cities To Satellites - When In Rome EP"

I wait with trepidation following the intro into ‘The Way I Found It’ thinking of so many influences that were springing to mind such as The Sunshine Underground and The Rifles to name but a few, but I need not have worried the clear cut vocals from Joe were a gift to the ear and I was particularly impressed with the development of this up tempo track, lyrically concise, foot tapping, and guaranteed to sway the most disparate crowd, arguably for me their best work on the EP.

I move on to the track ‘Worlds Alive’ and again am impressed by the bands ability when taking things a little slower, do so equally as well. Melodic and mellow, sharp lyrics, with more than a smattering of early “Embrace” and a Danny McNamara like glorious vocal.This track exudes a passion I know I can relate to, a genuinely affecting song specifically written to tug at mine and many other heartstrings.

Moving on to “When in Rome” has me thinking that this has a positively commercial stamp already on it, and just as if I was listening to an accompaniment to one of my very favorite TV although short lived detective drama” Zen” it hits the spot, produced very cleverly, and ensures the band are more than content with sounding just like themselves, it definitely awaits a TV production company call.

I’m struggling now as I hit the last track ‘On my Way’ cautiously thinking that there must be something that shows this bands vulnerability but I have to admit I am yet to find it. The vocal is lush and textured and the band hailing from such an illustrious musical city heritage can congratulate themselves on a job well done in producing such accomplished music. This is an EP that could explode if enough people latch onto it, it has a mountain of accessibility, and displays a band that are much more than a flash in the pan. This EP spells good but more importantly it spells quality. - Mako Records - Carole Noble


When in Rome EP - Dec 2011 release



After setting up base camp in Liverpool just over a year ago, the indie quartet, Cities To Satellites, began to write music in Andrian's (lead guitar) flat and it was here that half of their debut EP 'When In Rome' would be penned.

Under a different name, the band took to the streets of Liverpool in search of any bar or club that would allow them to showcase their material. But sadly, it wasn't long before the quartet became a trio and without a drummer to keep the band afloat, all hopes of fame and fortune seemed lost.

But this didn't stop Joe, Andrian and Josh from continuing with their plans. When they discovered the works of producer, Andy Ross, and his studio in Haywood, the band decided that it would be here they would record their four-track EP. So, with little time to prepare, they called on the help of Mark Easton, who was happy to fill in on drums for the duration of the studio session.

Now, shortly after the release of the aforementioned EP, Cities To Satellites (Joe, Andrian, Josh and Mark) are ready to embark on a new chapter in their music career.
