The track is an inscessantly catchy record, feeling like Hartman's biggest shot at a hit yet. Hartman describes Satellite as "a call to arms disguised as a love song". A track that became something of an anthem for the artist, she describes the effect it has had on both her and her forthcoming debut EP, "It made me feel strong in being honest and vulnerable which set a tone for the rest of the record."
Sara Hartman just followed up on her debut track from last year with new release Two Feet Off The Ground.
Monster Lead Me Home thrusted Hartman into the limelight last year, generating almost ten million online streams and a hat tip from Spotify, who named her one of their Spotlight for 2016 artists. Two Feet Off The Ground was written in just a day and, in the singer's own words, "...is a don’t think, just follow your instincts kind of tune". On her inspiration for the song, Hartman, who used to live alone in Berlin, explains "I read an old saying in a book about Weimar Berlin, that there was something in the air in this city that made you want to dance."

Slipping into the closing weeks of 2015 is this debut track from 19-year-old musician Sara Hartman, who combines folk-tinged pop melodies with slightly operatic vocal harmonies.
Born in Sag Harbor is Suffolk County in the US, Hartman now resides in Berlin. Her new home town is the birthplace for Monster Lead Me Home. On the track she explains: "It’s a snapshot of my mind when I first got to Berlin ... It was really exciting but very frightening at the same time. I put everything into the music I make and trust it’ll take me where I’m supposed to be, i.e. Monster Lead Me Home.
