Toronto’s Like Satellites opens up about mental health in cathartic new single “Catch My Breath”

Toronto-based Like Satellites will be releasing their debut EP Nothing Left To Sayon May 17th, but today you can hear the lead single “Catch My Breath.” The alternative, pop-rock track is a straightforward, honest song that introduces all the themes from the EP and serves as a great introduction to the rest of the record.

This song came out of a really turbulent time when I was losing a lot of people because of my own mental health and because I was holding onto things and people that I kind of knew weren’t coming back,” says vocalist Leah Gillespie. “Writing and performing it is really cathartic for me, and I hope that it can do that for other people too when they listen to it or hear it live.

Nothing Left To Say was produced by Sam Guaiana, engineered by Scott Komer, with additional production by Okan Kazdal of Nevrlands. The EP boasts an incredible crew and just as many hooks as fans have come to expect from this pop/rock outfit since the release of their debut single “Muscle Memory.”

‘Nothing Left To Say’ is by far the most honest thing I’ve ever done as a musician,” says Gillespie. “Ryan, Alex, and Logan are some of the most talented, inspiring people that I know and I honestly couldn’t do any of it without them. They brought this story I wanted to tell to life in so many ways, and now we get to share what we’ve been working on and testing out on the road with anyone willing to listen to it.

From its inception in 2016, Like Satellites has been the love-child of Gillespie (AKA Leahishazy). With a penchant for soaring melodies and punchy lyrics, Gillespie has been a slow-burner in the local music scene. With influences ranging from We are the In Crowd, All Time Low, The 1975, Brand New, and Bring Me The Horizon, Like Satellites has a fresh sound that still hints at summers at Warped Tour and teenage angst. They blend their collective experience to create the right balance of maturity and melodrama, and through it all, one thing has remained; the drive to release music that people want to listen to with the windows down and the volume turned way up.
