Video: Deleo – Satellite

Deleo are an alternative rock band from Montpellier, France who have caught my attention through their intimately emotive ballad Satellite.

By Graeme Smith

The track opens with a gentle guitar riff that feels reminiscent of the ’90s Brit pop. There is a certainly an aloof Gallic twist to the sound though, and an explosive modern feel to the chorus. Perhaps its most distinct feature is singer Emilie vocals – delightfully haunting and welcoming in equal measure.

Deleo is named for its two founding members – a concatenation of Denis the guitarist and Eleonore, the original vocalist. COVID led to a shakeup of the band’s members, but they are now performing as a trio. Satellite is the first release from their forthcoming album, and you can check out its video below.
