Many an American rocker has found him or herself looking east for musical inspiration. Nope, not the Orient. Reel your gaze back a continent to Europe, specifically England. As we well know, English soil is nutrient-rich, pop fodder, capable of producing verdant hit-makers like The Beatles, The Smiths, Radiohead and Oasis. Elliot Craig is just one of thousands of Yanks with a yen for Brit-rock who chased his anglophilia across the pond in the hopes of tapping into the wellspring. Busking and open-mics didn’t lead to a champagne supernova, so after a few years Elliott returned to the States with a lot of English-inspired material and formed Satellite Crush. The music is contemporary Cure — panging guitars saturated in reverb, ethereal vocals, throbbing bass lines and cymbal showers. The glittering “Jealousy” is an echo chamber of yawning cellos, acoustic guitars, and ghostly vocals, while “Lovesick Soul” is straight up jangle pop. On the soaring chorus of “Paris to London” Craig sings, “It’s not always easy being loved.” Look, there are a lot of Brit-rock devotees here in the States, man. You better get used to it.
