Firewoodisland from Bristol and The Satellite Station from Ohio have unveiled the surreal video for their latest indie-pop single, ‘Look Through,’ which was published on April 8th. Dan Millice, a Grammy nominee, mastered the song (Al Green, Ben Reactor).

Firewoodisland previously recorded a beautiful cover of Alphaville’s ‘Forever Young’ through Warner Music UK, which was featured in an Airbnb advertisement, and their music has been featured on Netflix’s Shadowhunters and Global TV’s NURSES, among other series.

With his songs featured on Apple+, Netflix’s Love Is Blind, and MTV, The Satellite Station has amassed over 9 million streams across platforms. Alex Rainbird Records’ Satellite Station has received backing from AirwaveMusicTV and Aperion, to mention a few.

Travis Rue is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Akron, Ohio, who goes under the alias The Satellite Station. Rue’s storytelling provides his view on life and the hardships and joys of being human and is known for his haunting folk-inspired melodies and emotionally rich lyrics.

Stian Vedy and Abi Eleri, artists, multi-instrumentalists, and songwriters, have joined forces to create what began as a solo project. Stian met Abi after moving to Cardiff from a windy west coast island in Norway. The duo handles all creative assets in-house, from audio to visual, and has dubbed their sound ‘Mountain Pop,’ drawing inspiration from artists such as Bon Iver, Oh Wonder, Thomas Dybdahl, RyX, and Bear’s Den. Their music is reminiscent of Bon Iver, Novo Amor, James Blake, and Vancouver Sleep Clinic, with a wonderful combination of organic and digital elements and emotional stylings.

In the video for their current single, Firewoodisland and The Satellite Station create a strange narrative.
Light indie tones and beautiful lyrics pave the way for the unusual hero in this story of captivity, brotherhood, and peril. An unexpected twist at the finale, as in all excellent stories, leaves the audience asking for more and anxiously anticipating the trio’s next installment.

When Abi came up with the initial idea for this video, we didn’t think we would be able to pull it off in time for release. Everything was filmed and edited between us three with a little help from friends and family. On our end, we mainly filmed in front of a black wall, with a few forest shots towards the end. Stian did all the editing, which took longer than expected due to the amount of mirror CGI. It’s been a hectic, but fun and rewarding project to work together on over the internet,” Firewoodisland says.

The Satellite Station elaborate, “Stian and Abi’s enthusiasm and encouragement definitely pushed me to step out of my comfort zone and really jump into shooting the video. It felt overwhelming and impossible at times, but Stian and Abi were there to help me through every challenge. Writing, filming, and editing a video of this scale would have been a challenge if we were doing it in person. The fact we were able to pull this off from opposite sides of the world is truly incredible. This also would not have been possible without some great friends and my wife who filmed every scene on our end, including going out into the forest in the extreme cold for hours to film the intro scenes. It was much colder than it looked.”
