Biography

I met Allen and Arthur in high school. i met Fred in high school too but that was briefly, at a party, and he wasn't very interesting so i didn't really pay attention to him :) so yea i met Allen and Arthur, and Arthur's group of friends got me into Blink-182. That's when i really started getting into rock and i eventually picked up a guitar. After high school Allen and I starting jamming with different people. Did that for about a year and then Arthur asked to jam so the three of us got together as often as we could. After about a year of fine tuning songs that STILL weren't close to finely tuned, Much Music created a new show called Disband. It's a reality tv program that showcases local talent and tells them if they should disband or stay together. We took a shot at it and sent Much an email. We we're only a 3 piece band without a bass player. I think that intrigued them and we got our own episode. At the end of it all we got Disband-ed :P but it was an awesome experience none the less. And not bad for our first show. That show gave us a pretty good amount of exposure and since that time (Feb.2009) we've been playing gigs at different clubs in downtown Toronto and other private events. We were lucky enough to find a sick bass player in Fred. Not only can he play well, but we all get along like we've known him for years. Great find! Oh, i guess i should tell you how we came up with our name. We wanted it to have something to do with the sky or outer space. Everyone in our circle of friends has a sort of fascination for the sky and space. So i was listening to "I Put On" by Young Jeezy and Kanye's part was on, and one of the lines goes "i'm high as a satellite. i see those flashing lights" and i was like %*&@ man let's call ourselves Satellite! Arthur and Allen were like yea that sounds cool. but then Arthur suggested Satellites, which was better because there's more than one of us. THEN we thought it'd be cool to take out one of the "L"s and make it SateliteS! Thar u have it! i gotta go pee! Peace out!

Lyrics

Melancholy Holly

Written By: Theo Vigo

silence
my favourite form of love
and your favourite kind to show
with those curvy lines you own
in likeness
to a perfect paper dove
blowing crazy in the wind
for the hell of it
sent from above

from a heaven loving
learning, leaving, swiftly stealing
kisses from your brow
and when you wake
i'll have you here and now

i know you think of me
each night you fall asleep
to make it real you feel just like a queen
(especially when you have wet dreams)

sideways and soft things
give a little, give it all
and on the line i got your call
but bad timing from lying
to yourself you took the fall
you coulda had it all

and from the way you look tonight
the way you said you'd never fight
the things felt from deep within
cuz you and i were made to sin

i know you think of me
each night you fall asleep
forgetting all the hell and shit you've been through
longing for the times i bring you

sideways and soft things
give a little, give it all
and on the line i got your call
but bad timing from lying
to yourself you took the fall
you coulda had it all

looking for a light to guide you on your way
well i certainly have been up lifted
one-eyed vision has been shifted
but the wax is melted
candle fades away
so just wait in destinations brought to
longing for the times i bring you

sideways and soft things
give a little, give it all
and on the line i got your call
but bad timing from lying
to yourself you took the fall
you coulda had it all

Strangled

Written By: Theo Vigo

I'm easing in the sunlight watching the cars go by,
where have you been all this time? why do you hold so tight this lie?
and burning through the questions waiting for smoke to clear.
and i'm breathing deep the air and thinking about the times we used to share

'cause she strangles, the one who cut my air flow drowned
never thinking about tomorrow, never hearing me cry out.
couldn't handle, the pressure built then you tapped out,
so i'll dream about tomorrow, is it with you or without?
is it with you or without?

you said i let it happen, what have you done for me?
now i'm stopping short the finish line, i could reach out to claim what's mine but..
i look into your eyes and i never see the need.
it's like the need i have for you, but mine will stay undone and never come true.

'cause she strangles, the one who cut my air flow drowned
never thinking about tomorrow, never hearing me cry out.
couldn't handle, the pressure built then you tapped out,
so i'll dream about tomorrow, is it with you or without?
is it with you or without?

is it with you or without?

whoa-o-oah

is it with you or without?

'cause she strangles (strangles), the one who cut my air flow drowned
never thinking about tomorrow, never hearing me cry out.
you couldn't handle (handle), the pressure built then you tapped out,
so i'll dream about tomorrow, is it with you or without?
is it with you or without?

without.....

A Fast Song

Written By: Theo Vigo, Arthur Sollano

coming up is a struggle in itself
try to be presistent
always dusting of the shelf
and keeping
ears closed to intolerating few
eyes are open wide
watch me taking in the view
i see a
blond girl and she looks a little tipst
but never does she fail to sing the words
sway her hips
and a
young couple making out by the stairs
i don't think they can hear us
and i'm trying not to stare

we just play it like we never bombed before
and i don't know what all the stress was for
a fast song to pass the time to
a late show and packed hotel room

this may be the first time
but it isn't the last night
we'll get paid to blow your mind
so pop that fine wine
and make a toast to the good times
free drinks and hollywood times
it'll happen all in due time
follow the signs

so we made it to the top now
even though we're only playing shops now
it's all in your mind
and in mine we're flyin'
taking our time
before the lime-light decides to blind
we gotta
keep rockin' and you gotta keep it hoppin'
satelite rotation and the magic never stoppin
how's your foot taste?
yea, you said we couldn't win
now everybody waits for our story to begin

we just play it like we never bombed before
and i don't know what all the stress was for
a fast song to pass the time to
a late show and all the right moves

this may be the first time
but it isn't the last night
we'll get paid to blow your mind
so pop that fine wine
and make a toast to the good times
trash shit cus we know that we could times
it'll happen all in due time
follow the signs

STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT
the shine is seen so high
a dream to race the skies
WISH I MAY, WISH I MIGHT
to be looking down so soon
on my old home town
a bird's eye view
LAAAAAAA Laaaaaaaa

this may be the first time
but it isn't the last night
we'll get paid to blow your mind
so pop that fine wine
and make a toast to the good times
tour across the world and back times
it'll happen all in due time
follow the signs

Girl On The River

Written By: Theo Vigo, Fred Merritt-Gambrill

silhouette floating on the surface like
projection on the water running through my eyes
i would jump in but i don't know how to swim
just wet my fingertips and let the silence win

please please make me understand
because i really want to know the answer
i need you to take my hand and into the water

what place is this you speak of, the spot the drunk can't find?
i can see the moonlight on the river
and i wonder about that line
and if you see it too, the same moon
as we both reflect upon you i wanna runaway, i`ll runaway.

cigarette floating on the surface like
(she won my heart and she took it beating)
cherry on the water says she stole my life
(i took my time girl, got lost in the meaning)
ripples carry messages of lust and sin
(abandon hope)
soak into the shoreline, soak into my skin
(my skin!!!)

please please make me understand
because i really want to know the answer
i need you to take my hand and into the water

so what place is this you speak of, the spot the drunk can't find?
i can see the moonlight on the river
and i wonder about that line
and if you see it too, the same moon
as we both reflect upon you i wanna runaway, i`ll runaway.

so what place is this you speak of, the spot the drunk can't find?
i can see the moonlight on the river
and i wonder about that line
and if you see it too, the same moon
as we both reflect upon you i wanna runaway, i`ll runaway.

Slow Motion Love

Written By: Theo Vigo

In all my life, i've never seen a world so bright.
I'm seeing you.
You hold me up, you lift me up, you see me through.
And i swear to try, to keep you in love this time.
We'll get there soon.
Just take my side, we'll be alright, I wanna spend the night with you,
in this moment forever

Singing WHO-O-OAH, and tonight we'll fly away,
we'll fly away together.
and whoa, you kno-o-ow, we're gonna take this all in
slow motion... slow motion love.

One day we'll fly, to soar at desired heights,
to be with you.
Into the sky, on natural highs, into the blue.
I wanna eat together, sleep together, breathe together.
I need you forever.
I know that this all may sound a little creepy.
Just whisper you love me, and whisper you need me,
and I'll kiss you gentle, cus girl you complete me....

Singing WHO-O-OAH,
Singing WHO-O-OAH, and tonight we'll fly away,
we'll fly away forever.
and whoa, you kno-o-ow, we're gonna take this all in
slow motion... slow motion love.

oooo-oh-o-oah
who-o-oaaaah ooo-o-oaaah
take you away.....
take you away.....
take you away.....
take you away.....

WHO-O-OAH,
Singing WHO-O-OAH, and tonight we'll fly away,
we'll fly away forever.
and whoa, you kno-o-ow, we're gonna take this all in
slow motion... slow motion love.
