New video for hard-rock duo, Satellite Citi‘s new track Slow Kill has just been released, which is stop-motion animation and a visceral edge towards the sci-fi genre.
Anna Gevorkian (vocals/drums) and Shaunt Sulahian (guitars/backing vocals) spoke with The Fountain about bringing that video to life, working with Brad Wood and what more they have planned for 2018.
TF: A new video release, you must be excited?
Of course! Our team worked over a year to make this one happen. Being the difficult nature of bringing a stop-motion video to life, we’re definitely glad it’s finally out to the public. We wanted to revisit the idea of corruption & manipulation that’s so prevalent in our current political climate, but with our own creative twist instead of retreading what’s been done before. That sounds like a hard sell, but thankfully our talented director, Rosie Geozalian, struck the right balance between thought-provoking themes and aesthetic creativity, and brought our vision to life with this original concept.
TF: And what was it like to work with Brad Wood?
Before recording in the studio we did a ton of pre-production, and even wrote some songs in between recording sessions that ended up making it on the EP. Brad is an overall tremendous producer and person. He really made sure the process was as smooth as can be, and in the end we not only got a record we were extremely proud of, but made an awesome friend
TF: What inspired the name Satellite Citi?
We got the idea when we started thinking about a world where people communicate via satellite minds, and we just stuck to it ever since.
TF: Are you going to be promoting this with a tour, are we likely to see you play live soon?
We’re definitely gearing up for a West coast run in the states here during the summer, but that’s all we got planned for now!
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
Every upcoming gig seems like our new favourite show, but the Troubadour in LA a couple weeks ago was incredible.
