Natalie McCool shines as a major star in the UK indie world, having risen through the ranks and amassed a ton of organic support. Known for her truly innovative & beautiful take on pop music, 2016's ‘The Great Unknown’ made tastemakers across the board fans of her exceptional art; with notable supports with Aurora & Jamie Lawson, & acclaim from The Sunday Times, Q, Pigeons & Planes & Wonderland as well as BBC Radio 1 DJs Huw Stephens & Alice Levine.
Latest single 'Someone Nue' is a beautiful track made even more special by her incredibly vivid song writing. Simple textures & minimal soundscapes evoke feelings of fresh starts, a stellar backdrop for a voice that's soft yet so captivating.
Fully wrapped up, her forthcoming album is a fine collection of songs which channel her raw, inimitable writing style. Partly co-written with The Wombats' Daniel Haggis, they capture and crystallize her memories from both childhood and adulthood, weaving deeply intimate stories that channel life's most vital thoughts and feelings like love, jealousy and loss into a skewed mixture of lilting yet gloriously catchy pop songs.
These songs will set the tone for such an ambitious and exciting act.
