You know, when one is constantly bombarded by derivative pop drivel through the likes of X-Factor etc. it becomes quite easy to become jaded and cynical. It’s easy to forget, that at it’s best, pop music can be delightfully immediate and playful. In this environment Natalie McCool is a godsend. Occupying the same effortless, modern pop space as Lorde, and Sky Ferreira, McCool’s sound is warm, light, and, most of all, ear candy. ‘PINS’ is the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts graduate’s latest single, and the first track to be gleaned from her upcoming EP. Without a doubt her most accomplished effort thus far, the track is built around a near stomp heartbeat, and McCool’s relaxed confident vocals. It’s bound to be featured at McCool’s free showcase at The Islington on April 16th.
