Split Single - "Satellite"

Photo by Noah Sheldon

Split Single is Jason Narducy's project, featuring his Bob Mould Band and Superchunk bandmate Jon Wurster on drums and R.E.M.'s Mike Mills on bass. While their previous two singles sounded like songs that would come from a Superchunk related project, "Satellite" is completely different. "Satellite" is a straight up power ballad. It's going to give you some serious 1980's flashbacks, and you might expect to hear Adam Curry's voice introducing it. Ok, that might be an extreme comparison, but it's what would have happened if your favorite 90's alt-rockers embraced the 80's power ballad with their hearts fully on their sleeves instead of rejecting them outright. It does end with a killer 90's style feedback outro before any of us can get too emotional.

Jason Narducy says of the new song and video:

“‘Satellite’ was the first song I wrote for this album. The lyrics are about searching for connection which is something many of us have felt deeply during the pandemic. I wanted the video to capture that feeling of isolation and then the jubilation once a connection is made.
This video came together very quickly. I didn’t know the young crew that was referred to me but they were fantastic. Jimmy Chung plays the street salesperson. We met when he was cast of ‘Verböten’ the musical. I liked him right away. He has an infectious positive energy. It was great to work with Jimmy again.”
