[Indie/Folk] SATRE – Stay Away

Swedish soundscapes have long permeated the world of music, merging ethereal Nordic rhythms with global influences. SATRE, hailing from Stockholm, is the latest such melodic talent to do just this. Having transitioned from the tranquility of Swedish nature to the vibrant area of London’s streets, his newest single, “Stay Away”, emerges as a sonic experience worth hearing.

The track is a bright indie-folk-pop experience, ideal for folks of many walks of life. One can hear influences of Bon Iver’s ethereal tunes and The Lumineers’, yet SATRE’s distinct resonance lies in his narrative. It’s a song shaped from personal trials—a contemplation of returning to Stockholm after a challenging stint in London. It is in this context that the words “Stay Away” are uttered by a sibling. Not as a deterrent, but as a gentle nudge towards dreams.

This narrative depth, combined with an strong song-writing, has led to “Stay Away” being spotlighted as the Artist’s Pick on ‘Future Hits Radio’s Fresh Finds: Folk’. Proving SATRE’s evolving artistry, it is a song that doesn’t merely seek to entertain but to narrate a journey—a musician’s quest amidst the contrasting backdrops of two iconic cities.
