The Night Flight Orchestra Drop Deliciously Retro New Jam “Satellite”


The Night Flight Orchestra — the AOR / dad-rock throwback band featuring members of Soilwork and Arch Enemy — have been cranking out jams at an unbelievable pace. Ever since their sophomore album Skyline Whispers came out in 2015, three years after their smash-filled debut Internal Affairs, it’s been no rest for the wicked: Amber Galactic in 2017, Sometimes the World Ain’t Enough in 2018 and now even more new music here in 2019, albeit just a single (for now).

“Satellite” finds The Night Flight Orchestra doing what they do best (and no one does better), putting a modern production veneer on feel-good, tongue in cheek, singalong ditties that recall the very best of Chicago, Night Ranger and Journey. The song construction, as usual, is master-level, and the production is just mwah! This one’s a banger, and it’s got a super-fun video companion to boot. Although, frankly, Bjorn “Speed” Strid could sing me anything and I’d go gaga for it.

The Night Flight Orchestra are currently in the studio recording their next album, so even if that doesn’t come out until 2020 the band will still be kicking out the tunes at a supersonic pace. Also, get this: they’re using the same drum kit that was used during the recording of ABBA’s 1980 album Super Trouper. That should sound delightful!
