Isaac Flaherty (lead guitar) and Elijah Fresco (bass) were left feeling raw after their previous band had just broken up. Looking for a pick me up, they met Danny Devlin (drums) when visiting his house to see a man about a dog. Noticing Danny’s drumkit in the corner and in a challenge to see if he could actually use the thing, the three began to jam. Now in search for a singer they reached out to Zac Goluch (vocals & guitar) who at first was playing it a bit too cool… It wasn't until the four effortlessly wrote their first single that Zac was in and at last the Wollongong four-piece Satin Cali was borne.
Cue late 2020, the band released their first single ‘Orange’ which saw them quickly supported by the world’s leading contemporary music tastemaker BBC Radio 1, who complimented the bands “capturing sound which can go in any direction.” Staying true to just that, the band continued to release a string of eclectic singles in ‘Preacher’ and ‘Will I Die’, referencing influences from Royal Blood to Foo Fighters and Violent Soho. Now really turning heads in the local scene and being described as “Kings of Leon if they grew up surfing your local” by triple j, the band went on to sell out three shows in their hometown.
Satin Cali’s world class song writing efforts are raw and relatable, something which the band pride themselves on and reinforces their desire to incorporate their fans into their art. This inclusiveness shined bright during a COVID lockdown where the band created a travelling concert set up in the back of a truck, which stopped out the front of various fans front yards giving them a one of a kind COVID safe party. Their out of the box thinking caught the attention of the likes of The Terrys, enlisting Satin Cali as main support for their national tour in late 2021.
Guaranteed to have you rocking as much as you’ll be feeling, Satin Cali are one of the most exciting and charming bands emerging in Australia. With plenty of new music on the way and even rumours of their own podcast, you’re going to want to follow along as this four-piece crafts their own lane.
