Anti-genre producer, songwriter and vocalist Natalie returns with her hypnotic new single Evil. A creeping bell melody opens the track before a deep synth bass takes control. The drums in this track break away from pop tradition, adding edge to the driving bassline. The intricate production features the clever use of foley and vocal chopping, creating a call-and-response dynamic with the lyrics for a truly immersive experience.
Natalie's latest release, "Evil," represents a bold step forward in her artistry and a departure from her underground roots. Despite staying true to the themes and lyricism that have made her a standout artist, Natalie expands her musical palate, pushing the boundaries of what is considered pop music.
Evil's lyrics cleverly satirize the notion of sapphic desire as sinful, adopting almost a demonic perspective to mock societal norms. “There aren't enough songs about lesbian hook-up culture or the environment and factors surrounding it. Sure, sapphic love songs have their place, but not everything is about love, and I wanted to focus on the messy and chaotic reality outside of that.”
Natalie burst onto the music scene in mid-2018 with her debut EP "Shameful". She quickly gained recognition from notable music publications like Lyrical Lemonade, Earmilk, and Hilly Dilly, and went on to release a string of genre-defying singles that seamlessly blend pop toplines with alternative R&B production. Her music has been featured on popular Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday, Fresh Finds, Teardrop, and Alternative R&B. With experience supporting artists like Trevor Daniel and Asian Doll, Natalie has now shifted her focus to writing, producing, and releasing captivating standalone tracks.
