I believe you won't be surprised if The Satellite Station's new single is already on IMC. Released today, "Chain Reaction" evokes the weight of silence at the end of a relationship. A situation that I am experiencing right now. So I can tell you that it spoke to me immediately.

Needless to say, Travis Rue, the artist who makes music under the name The Satellite Station, has a knack for creating songs that speak to the masses. Always very comfortable with words and beautiful melodies, the artist from Ohio shows us once again the full extent of his talent. At almost five minutes running time, "Chain Reaction" is possibly The Satellite Station's longest song. And yet, the magic operates throughout the song. And we reach the end of the song by asking ourselves "already finished?!" Always full of beauty, mystery, and delicacy, Travis builds, minute after minute, a new masterpiece. The song is built little by little until the last minute when we find all the ingredients of a good TSS track: the beautiful vocal harmonies, the power, and of course: the triggering of the thrill (essential).

Good news, for fans of The Satellite Station, he's releasing an album in exactly two weeks, on July 30th. And in addition to releasing a masterpiece every 6 weeks, he embarked on a new adventure: creating a musical podcast with Michael, his producer at Court Street Recording, called "Top 5". The last episode welcomes a guest who is not unknown to you if you follow IMC: Jenny Kern. Small world, isn't it?

Added to our Main Spotify Playlist, our "IMC Family" playlist, and played daily on Indie Music Center's Radio.

Lyrics

You were sleeping in the back seat
I was driving through the dark of night
Started raining on the windshield
But I was lost some place deep behind my eyes

Your words your words your words your words
Still ricocheted through the car
There are some things that you can’t take back
Some lines that you know you never should cross

Wanna tell you it was okay
But I’m not sure that I can afford the cost
How could how could how could how could
You let this be torn apart

Cause every choice has a chain reaction
If you follow the lines it all lead us back to the start
And every hope is a small distraction
Cause no matter our plan we all just end up on our own
The weight is heavy when we get home
So I take my pillow and sleep on the floor
Every room had fallen silent
But I can feel the tension behind the door
tell me tell me tell me tell me Tell me
What were fighting for

Cause every choice has a chain reaction
If you follow the lines they all lead us back to the start
And every hope is a small distraction
Cause no matter our plan we all just end up on our own

So I watched you watched you watched you go
Fighting my off the thought that one day I’ll die alone
And we’ll split this life that we both made
Split it down the middle but I’ll burn everything you don’t take
So I watched you watched you watched you go I know it will get better but I really hate to be alone
And I swear I heard someone once say that you gotta let go if your gonna find a better way

Cause every choice has a chain reaction
If you follow the lines they all lead us back to the start
And every hope is a small distraction
Cause no matter our plan we all just end up on our own
