Miss World is the project of London based artist Natalie Chahal (previously one half of Shit Girlfriend alongside Laura-Mary Carter of Blood Red Shoes) who combines sugar-sweet vocals with sardonic wit, a grungy trash-pop-thrash and perfect melody. After a plethora of superb single releases, Miss World finally releases her debut album ‘Keeping Up With Miss World.’ Part satirical commentary on the empty vacuosity of life dictated by social media trends, lifestyle mags and hashtags, part art project. Miss World’s debut album manages to be astute, funny, acerbic, engaging and crucially is absolutely rammed with killer pop tunes; “a multi-coloured sonic mood board featuring torn up images of Ariel Pink, Kim Gordon, Clueless OOTDs, Madonna and Kim Kardashian smeared with gluestick goo.”
