Satellite Sky / Bio

Satellite Sky is the musical vision of Australian siblings, Pete Kicks (vocals/guitar) & Kim Kicks (drums). Growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, they began creating music in true rock n roll fashion in the confines of the family garage. After receiving several visits from the police who informed them their raucous rock n roll was reverberating throughout the surrounding neighborhood, they graduated to jamming in local music studios.

It was not long before they realized that playing live shows was where they were truly in their element. After several national tours throughout Australia, they began touring throughout the globe, including performances at SxSW, Popkomm, Canadian Music Week, CMJ Festival and showcases in Los Angeles, New York, London and Berlin.

Relocating to Los Angeles, they released their self-titled E.P ‘Satellite Sky’ (produced by Paul Lani- U2, Motley Crue, Prince) and highly successful single "Got This Feeling". The latest EP 'Bleary Eyed Fashion' was recently premiered by Henry Rollin's on KCRW.

Their music is also supported and spun by one of Los Angeles' most well respected radio D.J's Rodney Bingeheimer (KROQ)
Satellite Sky is proudly endorsed by Gretsch Drums, Gibraltar Hardware, Telefunken, Westone, Cympad, Copper Peace.

Their music can be heard in a variety of commercials, films and trailers, including music documentary ‘Rockin The Wall’ (PBS), L.A Film Festival Netflix award winner ‘Almost Kings’ and the NFL’s 2011/12/13 Season campaigns. The single ‘Got This Feeling’, was featured throughout NBC’s and Budweiser’s Summer Olympics commercial campaign.

Anchored by what industry insiders regard as “one of the best rock drummers around”, Satellite Sky has a stage show that leaves audiences with the knowledge they were witness to an extraordinary Rock ‘n Roll experience!

“Satellite Sky pounds out pure unadulterated rock. They definitely look like a rock band, and their energy is incredible. There was so much chemistry between the band members it’s no surprise to learn they are siblings. There appears to be genuine warmth between them and they interact well on stage. Kim Kicks is absolutely lethal on the drums and I’ve never seen anyone drum quite so passionately.” Cambell Klose, Music.com.au

"Bleary Eyed Fashion...I thought this song sounded really cool, I like the idea of it!" Henry Rollins, KCRW.

"Kim Kicks has quickly become known as one of the best rock drummers around, with enough energy to light up a small city, fusing humor and flash with a loud, dominating stage presence...like a female version of the Animal from 'The Muppets', with true musicianship."
-Devon Wendell, International Review of Music
