Filmed in Pennsylvania's Concrete City, the visuals for "Valkyrie" epitomize the song's hard-hitting lyrics. Loudwire noted that the duo, "definitely capture a mood with their new song as the melodic guitars lay the foundation below Vale's increasingly intensifying vocals." Lead vocalist Larissa Vale remarked, "'Valkyrie' was a way for me to take control of my innate fear of death by externalizing it." She continued saying, "We definitely wanted this video to capture the essence of the song." It's evident that they succeeded. Abandoned, desolate, and covered in graffiti Concrete City served as the perfect backdrop to one of the duo's most dynamic singles. "We traversed secluded paths stepping over shotgun shells at our feet, and passed a lot of buildings with "GET OUT" spray painted on them. We found exactly what we were looking for."
"Valkyrie," the band's debut single, comes from their brand new album Endless, premiered via Billboard. "The album is a visceral reflection of our growth and maturation over the last few years," Vale told Billboard, "Endless signifies our ability to finally leave the past behind after a period of feeling like we would be trapped in it forever." Mastered by Ted Jensen (Muse, Marilyn Manson, Arcade Fire), the album paints an almost cinematic landscape, with each track revealing a new facet of the duo's style and complexity. Billboard described, "Syrupy vocal hooks abound, drizzled over whole mountain ranges of studio-shined guitar tapestries." Pairing influences ranging from Alice in Chains to Yo-Yo Ma with personal, emotional experiences and stories, Black Satellite have crafted a unified body of work that showcases their undeniable range. Vale remarked that with Endless, "We not only confronted our fears head-on, but were completely immersed in them."
Called a "rock band beyond definition" by idobi Radio, Black Satellite have been crafting mind-blowing alt-rock for over six years. Comprised of Larissa Vale (vocals) and Kyle Hawken (guitar), the duo came together in their hometown of State College, Pennsylvania and quickly formed a loyal bond that created the foundation for Black Satellite. The sound they've developed is a culmination of a deep-rooted partnership contributing to their instinctively cohesive writing style. Since their official start the band has been praised by New Noise Magazine, Alternative Press, and more for their out-of-this-world sound. Billboard lauded the band saying, "New York City-based duo Black Satellite has unabashed, big-time arena-rock aspirations."
"Valkyrie" comes from Black Satellite's debut album Endless, released on July 7th.
