Satin Jackets - "Olivia"
Satin Jackets is a lush indie-dance outfit helmed by masked German producer Tim Bernhardt along with Den Ishu, as well as various guest vocalists. The project's sound features relaxed disco grooves, often with live instrumentation (especially funky guitar licks), and lyrics which can be celebratory and lovestruck as well as a bit yearning. Satin Jackets began when Bernhardt (formerly of deep house group Lorenzo) became aware of neo-disco labels such as Permanent Vacation and Eskimo Recordings, and started creating tuneful house tracks influenced by disco and new wave. Several digital and vinyl-only releases appeared near the beginning of the 2010s, including singles and compilation tracks on Dikso Records, House of Disco, and Mullet Records, as well as remixes for Tesla Boy, Leendder, Black Magic Disco, and others. Satin Jackets eventually signed to Eskimo, contributing tracks to its color-themed compilations and releasing "You Make Me Feel Good" in 2013. The Foreign Affair EP followed on the label in 2014, and the group began touring internationally. Eskimo released "Shine on You" in 2015, followed by "We Can Talk."
This song, so full of sunshine and happiness, is like the summer on the beach. It makes you think of salt and sand in your hair, a cold beer in your hand and a sarong around your waist. On a gray dismal day like to day is outside, it is the memories of summer that keep us warm and hopeful.
So today, with sunshine in my hair and the memory of summer on my mind, I choose Satin Jackets' "Olivia" as my, black satin, red lips, gold hair, song for a, laugh your way to tomorrow, hold back nothing, give yourself the gift of forgiveness, Monday.
