Lately I've been trying to figure it out Maybe we're just taking a different route Lately, I've been looking at it all wrong Maybe, We're just playing a different song Thoroughly thriving Let's all go diving Happily singing Let's all go swimming 2x Let's all quit school and go to the pool Let's all get out and figure it out 2x Cool Kids clapping to Kerouac Hiding two fingers Behind their backs 2x Kesey tells you to take it easy & Thoreau tells you to take it slow yeah! Kesey tells you to take it easy & Thoreau tells you to take that shit slow! Thoroughly thriving Let's all go diving Happily singing Let's all go swimming 2x Let's all quit school and go to the pool Let's all get out and figure it out 2x

There's a hole in my heart But I fixed it and it was there from the very very start & I really I can't say I miss it And there's a stain on my shirt and I pray to god it's dirt there's a scratch on my car a scratch on my car but the thing still goes real far my car runs on gasoline to keep the environment clean Human interactions cause atomic reactions 2x I've never felt sicker Yeah, I've never felt sicker from drinking so much liquor 2x But at least it was beer at least it was beer instead of ever clear 2x And oh no it's not as bad as it seems just listen listen listen to your dreams 2x Human interactions cause atomic reactions 2x

about

AUSTIN, Texas – Local band Satalights has worked with Austin City Limits executive producer Terry Lickona and legendary audio engineer Stuart Sullivan to record their EP “HIP AMERICA.”

Alexander Scott created Satalights shortly after he moved to Austin from Boston. He thought of the name on an evening staring up at the stars, adding a twist to it that reflected his audio engineering background. “SATA” is an abbreviation for the standard interface that connects hard drives to computers.

“We are all little bits of information traveling at incredible speeds, orbiting the center of everything,” says Scott.

Building off foundations of post-rock and ambient music, Scott added elements of pop and rock to make the music more approachable. Lickona, a good friend of his, saw potential in the project and connected him to Sullivan, who has worked with icons like Willie Nelson and Sublime. After they hit it off, Satalights was set to record the EP at Sullivan’s studio, Wire Recording.

Satalights once grew to a ten-man band but has since dropped down to just three other members – drummer Marcus “Lefty” Shaw, bassist Garth Condit and Will Zenturion as a second drummer.

“After tracking, Zenturion and myself took the stems to his cottage studio in the middle of the woods, adding synths and sound effects and making some edits. We took the stems back to Wire, mixed it all together and the results were mesmerizing,” explains Scott.
