This is my first listen to Rogue Satellites, and I’m impressed. There’s a certain grunge rock to their sound which they’ve blended extremely well with lighter melodies. “Blue Skies Don’t Care” hits with a synth opening beat, and then blends smoothly into a gritty distorted electric guitar, which then leads into a surprisingly infectious melody. This seems to be a theme with a few of the songs, but there is no loss of versatility.
A nicely done studio album that shows evidence of complex instrumentation and mixing. This all gives the album a diverse sound, but still flows with the music they ultimately achieved.
The layering of sound used throughout Other Angels gives it a feeling of adventure and journey, something any complete album should have. Specifically on tracks like “Clean Your Closet Clear the Bones,” there is a depth that becomes apparent with the layering, and from that, an original dynamic.
