Natalie Returns with Hypnotic Single “Evil”
Anti-genre producer, songwriter and vocalist Natalie has emerged from the depths of the darkness to return with “Evil,” a creeping bell melody ringing through the intro before building into a synth and bass-driven rhythm. The drums in this track break away from pop tradition, adding edge to the driving bassline.
Natalie burst onto the music scene in mid-2018 with her debut EP, Shameful. She quickly gained recognition 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, and has gained experience in supporting artists like Trevor Daniel and Asian Doll. Natalie has now shifted her focus to writing, producing, and releasing captivating standalone tracks.
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. 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.
The lyrics captivate while also creating a satirical edge to 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.
