Bassist Matt Clarke states about Natural Satellite, «It is an album that has had a varied and unexpected journey. Moments of improvisation and one take performances have been blended with carefully considered arrangements and playing. We wanted to produce an album that felt fresh to ourselves and listeners but also keep the elements that we love to have in our music… Melody, beauty, aggression and a little bit of fun with time».
«The song Storyteller features a guest performance from Magenta’s Rob Reed on keyboards. He was so positive about the song and delighted that he could guest on it for us. We love what he brought to the track», says Matt Clarke.
