Satisfact


Often unjustly tagged as 80s new-wave-wannabes because of the analog synthesizers that weave through their songs, Satisfact is really more of a fully modern post-punk band that has earned its chops from dwelling in the space-rock stratosphere. The music produced by Satisfact was brilliantly preoccupied with the pervasiveness and alienating character of technology and modernity.

Often unjustly tagged as 80s new-wave-wannabes because of the analog synthesizers that weave through their songs, Satisfact is really more of a fully modern post-punk band that has earned its chops from dwelling in the space-rock stratosphere. The music produced by Satisfact was brilliantly preoccupied with the pervasiveness and alienating character of technology and modernity. But whenever the hypnotic keyboards and robotic blips and squeaks seem on the verge of carrying the music away, scratchy punk guitars dripping with feedback reassert themselves, joined by a fierce, precise rhythm section and sometimes even cello and violin. They released three albums on Up Records and K Records. So the sound ends up being something like Sonic Youth meets Thomas Dolby. Or maybe what the Psychedelic Furs would have sounded like if they were just getting started today.

No matter. The point is that Satisfact was remarkably adroit at mining some of the musical styles of the past two decades to craft music completely attuned to both the present and the future; a music familiar with the sound of an angry cry echoing off the unfeeling sides of the machines and the skyscrapers. Josh Warren and Chad States eventually went on to form FCS North, Matt Steinke went on to play with Mocket and then Octant and most recently The Five Cents, and Jeremiah Green with Modest Mouse.
