Satellite Mode
Opposites don’t just attract; they make magic.
What happens when you combine a classically trained multi-instrumentalist with a knack for
off-kilter cinematic soundscapes and a powerhouse singer with a staggering vocal range? The
answer is New York duo Satellite Mode—Jess Carvo [vocals] and Alex Marko [instrumentation,
A mélange of booming emotionally charged vocal sorcery and hypnotic sonic backdrops, the
group has quietly become a phenomenon. Without traditional promotion, they already racked
up over 2 million cumulative plays on Spotify, landed on the coveted Weekly Buzz playlist, and
crashed the platform’s U.S. Viral Top 10 and Overall Top 10 in addition to going Top 5 on Hype
Machine. Early praise came from Noisey and other tastemakers as the pair wowed audiences
throughout NYC since their 2016 arrival. You could think of them as the NETFLIX generation’s
answer to Portishead, and you’d only be about halfway there...After teasing out singles, 2017’s
Wild Excuses EP formally unlocks the world of Satellite Mode.
“We’re two sides of one whole,” explains Alex. “Even though the music is electronic, I try to
bring a live feel beyond the glue of synths. In terms of songwriting, I draw from sixties
influences like The Kinks, The Beatles, Velvet Underground, and Lou Reed solo. I bring the
rawness. Jess is the honesty and vulnerability. There’s something under that voice a lot of
people don’t have.”
“It wasn’t until I met Alex that everything shifted,” admits Jess. “At the time, I was in need of
being liberated from who I thought I should be as an artist. I bring a lot of longing to the table.
As a performer, I believe my job is to expose myself to others who are having trouble showing
themselves. That’s what it comes down to.”
