Originating from Pittsburgh and comprised of seasoned players, The Satin Hearts debut release, "Living On Overdrive" (Riff Records), is an excellent display of the band’s musicianship within the realm of 21st century rock n roll. Fronted by Marcy Eustice (formerly of the band Strange Brew), whose voice flows as fine as wine over the top of the band, The Satin Hearts are a force to be reckoned with. "Living On Overdrive" is exactly as the title sounds - this band runs full throttle, right down to the overdriven guitars played by none other than former New York City punk guitarslinger Fran Rifugiato [the legendary Francis Kidd of The Fingers and The Features]. Rifugiato’s sound is reminiscent of the New York City punk scene, but it runs deeper than that. Rifugiato also brings the listener back to the sounds of rock and roll pioneers like Carl Perkins and Chuck Berry. The rhythm section of Chris “SOX” Belin on drums and Jim “ACE” Capp on bass is the perfect gut-busting rhythm section for The Satin Hearts.
"Living On Overdrive"’s title track is a throwback to the 1950s with a guitar sound that gives the rockabilly heroes a run for their money. "Wild Child" is a standout tune with a ska-tinged beat, jangly guitars, mesmerizing feel and satin smooth vocals.The one acoustic song on the album, “Untied,” is a great break from the rest of the in-your-face songs, with the highlight of a heartfelt guitar solo unifying it with the rest of the album. Eustice sings with a deep passion, “I’m finished with my lies / I’m never coming back again / Broken away untied / I played my little games again.” She holds her own up against any of today’s rock and country singers. Eustice is also credited with flute on the song “Lightning Bolt.” The Satin Hearts combine the past with the present on “Cyberstalking Girl,” a song about a girl who is cyber-stalking a boy using literally every possible source. Eustice sings “I’m your friend on Facebook and I visit your websites / I know all your passwords, don’t care if that ain’t right” while the band plays an infectious beat that would have anyone dancing along in no time.
"Living On Overdrive," engineered by Dennis Takos at DNT Recording Studios, mastered by Garrett Haines at Treelady Studios, and produced by The Satin Hearts, is a solid debut album, filled with passion and packed with a dying breed of heartfelt rock songs. The Satin Hearts will be touring the U.S. this year in support of this debut release.
