ALBUM REVIEW: The Vyrll Society – ‘Course Of The Satellite’

Following a slew of recent single releases, alternative rockers The Vryll Society brace for impact with the forthcoming drop of their first full-length album, Course Of The Satellite.

The album is home to eleven tracks, each one a little different from the last. At the forefront is title track ‘Course Of The Satellite,’ which sets the mood for the album. ‘Course Of The Satellite,’ begins with a synthy astral intro, drawing forth visions of outer space. The song has a relaxing yet upbeat vibe as the chorus preaches lyrics, “We won’t change the course of the satellite” and “The universe unfolds in front of my eyes.” The song speaks on the destiny and the course the world runs.

Immediately afterwards follows ‘A Perfect Rhythm,’ which holds the kind of beat that gets stuck in your head and plays over and over again. The song is jazzy and infectious as it is rhythmic. “I need some space ’cause I have to find a perfect rhythm going through my mind,” is the chorus that divinely describes the track. Supported by the quintessential combination of drums and guitar, ‘A Perfect Rhythm’ runs as a song that will play continuously in your head for days on end.

Tears We Cry‘ is a personal favorite. This song, in classic rock fashion, brings a sultry, smooth, moody sound to listeners backed with sounds of whiny guitar and steady drum beats. Lyrics like, “The tears we cry yesterday, have become the stars” and “…envelop me, temptress of the sea,” only add to the pensive nature of the song.

Light At The Edge Of The World‘ starts off with an unexpected yet delightful intro. The beginning of the track sounds like someone is starting a CD player or even putting in a cassette tape. Vocals are distorted as if you are hearing the single through the radio. ‘Light At The Edge Of The World’ feels like summer with its psychedelic vibes and funky beats. The track will have you bopping along to the fun beats while the deep lyrics will give you something to think about, “I took her closer to the silence so she could see the wonder” and “We saw the light at the edge of the world go out completely.”

Course Of The Satellite is filled with a versatility of sounds and lyrical thoughtfulness that will leave you wanting to listen again. The Vyrll Society have managed to combine jazz, alternative, and rock all while keeping their style intact.
