Hello Satellites

It's too hot! Cool down with Melbourne act Hello Satellites.

Sometimes it is too hot for anything except lying on kitchen tiles, icy poles and chilled-out pop music. If you're looking for some new songs to add to that playlist, try Hello Satellites, a collaboration between Melbournian singer-songwriter Eva Popov and producer Nick Huggins. Their soothing pop and soaring vocals can make this month's soaring temperatures a little more bearable.

From the first minute of stand-out tracks 'Building a Wall' and 'Heartbeat Fast As A Rabbit', Popov's classical training and stated influences (including Tom Waits and "the sounds computers make") are clear. Clare Bowditch named their self-titled album the best record of 2010 and Radio National adored it, so you can even play it at your grandparents' house (because they have air conditioning and a pool).

Watch their adorable video for 'Heartbeat Fast As A Rabbit':

Hello Satellites play the Excelsior Hotel, Saturday 22 January, supported by Collarbones, Anna Chase and Melodie Nelson. Their self-titled debut album is out now.
