Satsuki/Vocals, Guitar

Androgynous, small, writes too many songs about breakups

Satsuki’s first “album” was a CD she made when she was 16, consisting of 8 originals and 5 covers recorded at her local youth centre, mostly about young love, loss of friendship and being burdened with high school problems. She distributed it at her school and her church for $10 each, and much to her embarrassment, years on, dozens of people have her prepubescent, slightly off-pitch vocals haunting their iTunes.

Later, Satsuki formed a band called Cartoon in which they were signed to a local indie label and subsequently released three singles on iTunes. Additionally, they performed at numerous Sydney venues and events such as the Oxford Art Factory and Blue Beat as well as being involved in TV production with Channel 7 and SBS 2.

Since she picked up the guitar, Satsuki’s writing has always focussed on relationships, intimacy and honesty - sometimes a little too much honesty. Inspired by punk lyrics and pop-rock melodies, Satsuki tries to make sense of her experiences at the time, resulting in a neatly wrapped package of emotions.
