Satellite Train is a new and exciting musical project comprised of members from some of the most beloved bands in Australia and America. Led by Australian singer-songwriter Michael Paynter of Icehouse fame, Satellite Train also includes Gregg Bisonnete of Ringo Starr, John McCall of The Black Sorrows, Randy Jacobs of Paul Kelly, Shane O’Mara of Paul Kelly, Pasquale Monea of Stephen Cummings, Jamie Muhoberac of John Mayer and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction. The members of the band first came together to create a fun side project and that’s exactly what they’ve delivered with their debut single: “Lies”.
The track is a fantastic example of modern pop rock that showcases Michael Paynter’s amazing vocal and songwriting talents. The song is driven by a classic rock-style guitar riff, as well as a driving backbeat that anchors the song. The lyrics of “Lies” carry a strong message of self-reflection and introspection, and they are delivered with a passionate energy that listeners will enjoy.
Paynter and the other Satellite Train members contribute a distinctive blend of male vocals to the song. Strong harmonies and an instantly recognizable melody combine to create a satisfying and emotional listening experience.
Overall, “Lies” is an incredible first single from Satellite Train that has great chart potential. A high-caliber work of pop-rock music that is easily embraced by a broad audience is produced by the band as a whole. We eagerly anticipate what the future will bring for this fascinating new enterprise.
