Bedfordshire’s own Satellites release new single
It’s a long time since I’ve heard a bleh this satisfying, but the one found a minute and 34 seconds into Satellites‘s new single “Clarity” is particularly lip-curling.
It’s hardly the only piece of weaponry in the band’s dual-fronted arsenal, however. Singers Andrew and James trade off with clean and screamed vocals, with flattering hints of Devil Sold His Soul‘s Paul Green more than a little present in both. They’re backed by a meaty slab of melodic metalcore – deceptively so, as there’s only three of them. It’s not necessarily setting anything alight, but it’s good nonetheless.
The band have produced a video for the song, which they premiered over with our friends Grave Press yesterday, and you can catch that below:
Whilst not part of a release as yet, the band are busy writing the follow-up to last year’s debut Voices, which they’re hopeful of dropping this autumn. Speaking on the song itself however, the band said:
“Clarity” is a little bit different to our usual sound which we’re excited and nervous for people to hear, it is also the first track we have done a music video to. It was a great experience for all of us and we would highly recommend the director, Zak Pinchin, to anyone out there as the final product is spot on.
Filmed at The Mansion House in Shuttleworth, the band have also produced a behind the scenes mini-documentary (more of a montage, if anything), which you can watch below of you so desire:
Satellites are playing The Castle Tavern in Luton this Saturday 28th March at Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses, with this song planned for the set. Make sure to go down and support them if you can! They’ll likely be touring in support of the next EP too, so if not, keep your eyes peeled for more dates.
