Saticöy hail from Ohio, but it was the move to Los Angeles, California that turned their music from hobby to career. The group went public in September 2018, after a 6 month self described “incubation period”, with their debut single Faded from Color. Self-written, self-produced, and self-promoted, the group has maintained a refreshingly unique take on modern indie-pop. Their catchy, pocketed production and relatable lyrics will plant themselves in your head, while their live performances envoke a sense of freedom as they loosen up those familiar records and showcase the band's musical ability.
Recent single "Clean It Up" is the product of a sultry collaboration between Saticöy, vocalist Tangina Stone, and keyboardist Simone Acosta. The song describes a relationship that has soured due to a lack of ambition and failure to love. It's a classic tale of both shattered expectations and self-empowerment.
Five members make up the band: Derek Long (Vocals/Guitar), Jaron Takach (Drums/Production), Garrett Namian (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Tim Greer (Keyboards/Sax) and Jonathan Averbook (Bass).
More music coming soon, stay tuned ;)
"Saticöy can be perfectly described as a group of visionary creatives, adding a fresh and interesting spin to Alternative Pop. More than a band, Saticöy is a “collective” focused on creative expression, living their absolute truth as artists, and sharing that message through their passionate music."
"The track (Faded from Color) features bright harmonious vocals and enthralling touches of guitar over vibrant pop beats. After the first listen, it is clear that more great singles are sure to come from Saticöy."
"One thing that continues to inspire us is the realization of just how little time we have. We’ve all worked day jobs that tend to leave us creatively fatigued, but we know if we don’t take advantage of our free time productively, that we will never truly progress."
