With the annual festive music merry-go-round slowly gathering pace, Charlotte OC has offered a timely reprieve with the release of raw new single “Satellite”. Equipped with an endearing backstory of gritty perseverance, the talented singer-songwriter’s path to this point has been a healthy struggle. Dropped by a major label as a teenager before the release of her debut album, the Blackburn native spent some time away from the industry before returning as a battle-hardened singer-songwriter with a story to tell. Teaming up with acclaimed producer Tim Anderson (Banks, Twenty One Pilots), 2017 saw her release accomplished, if slightly safe, debut album “Careless People”.

Fast forward to the end of 2018 and new track “satellite” is anything but. A rip-roaring alternative-pop offering that serves up a rollercoaster of emotions to keep listeners guessing throughout. Flickering between Lana Del Rey esque brooding verses and swashbuckling, pain-tinged choruses of an Adele anthem, Charlotte O’Connor exudes confidence and versatility on this self-assured hit single.

She shows an impressive control over all aspects of the song, from the perfect fit of the vocals over the sparse, varied rhythms and tempos of the production, to the secure nature of the lyrics and song structure that are happy to drift off in the assured arms of the magnificent chorus upon the songs' climax.
