Garnering attention from notable publications such as Billboard, Clash and The Line of Best Fit, to name a few, Natalie Shay is back with her dreamy pop single 'Heaven'.
Natalie is an indie-pop artist hailing from North London who has established an ever-growing presence and loyal fanbase through her explosive live performances and unforgettable anthems, recognising her as one of the UK’s hottest emerging talents. With indie synth pop leanings and ferocious guitar playing, Natalie's references range from Haim and Taylor Swift to Little Comets. Her relatable lyrics touch on love, self-discovery and the everyday experiences of a twenty-something.
Her incredible new single 'Heaven' comes of age in an ode to personal growth, exploring the point in time in which a girl feels like she has become a woman. Natalie confides, “I feel like in lockdown I learned a lot about myself and growth. In essence it's a song sung to my younger self about what I’ve discovered and how I see myself getting through life now. I think it's important to reflect on the most unique parts of your personality, and as a songwriter I think transparency comes from writing about your own flaws, not just those of others."
Portraying her personal story across her repertoire, 'Heaven' is the next single ahead of her highly anticipated EP, where each track explores a key feeling sensed when writing during the lockdown. She continues, “I hope I can inspire other girls in particular to get into songwriting as so many female singer/ songwriters inspired me to do so and it's saved, changed and made my life.”
Having sold out venues across London, most recently the Camden Assembly and Oslo, tickets are now on sale for Natalie Shay's upcoming headline show at The Omeara in London on 25th November. After a very big summer appearing at renowned festivals such as Reading, Y Not, Hyde Park BTS and 110 Above, it looks like 2022 will continue to be an explosive year.
