‘A mix of Mazzy Star meets Portishead’ - Liam Howe Natalie’s aesthetic urge to try to create something beautiful has always been strong. Growing up in South London she became fascinated with creators of mystical and fantasy worlds, and developed a passion for photography as she sought to capture the magic she found in nature. She always had a deep love of music, listening to a range of music from Fiona Apple to Deftones, but as an introspective and private person she’d never thought about stepping out from behind a camera and onto a stage. This all changed when her singer-songwriter and producer brother Matt came home and heard her singing in her room one day and encouraged her to put a video up on YouTube, so that other people could hear what he’d stumbled upon. With no expectations of this experiment, she’s been overwhelmed by how it’s taken off.

Natalie and Matt have started writing and arranging together and have garnered over 6 million views so far, building a worldwide fan base with their covers and unique originals built around her haunting, melancholic voice. Pretty early on into the song-writing process Natalie knew she wasn’t set to fit an anticipated or predictable mould. The Seattle grunge scene led by Nirvana was a major influence on her formative years, as well as bands like The Smashing Pumpkins and Pixies. Contrastingly Matt’s production style had developed with a strong connection to Trip Hop and the likes of Portishead, Massive Attack and The Fugees. Add in their mutual penchant for leftfield, acoustic folk and some bohemian traits, it was always going to be an unusual and intricate collaboration. While the stats continue to climb, they've been busy working on an as yet unreleased debut album.

Natalie also co-wrote “Broken You” one of the songs on the new James Walsh album. In recent months they've put out four new original songs with self-produced music videos, all of which have been enthusiastically received by their fans. While their music has now come to the interest of the wider international music industry, Natalie and Matt remain grounded in the support of the fans that have persuaded her to pursue music outside of the sanctuary of her bedroom. Of course if Matt hadn't found himself hearing Natalie sing when she thought the house was empty then none of this may ever have happened. Chance can be a wonderful thing… Read more on Last.fm.
