Natalie PrassSpacebomb Records #ad - She's a joy for any listener to discover-a lover and a fighter and old-soul trader in genuine energy, aiming straight for the heart. The two worked together, selecting nine tracks to run through Spacebomb's creative machine. Prass turns a sly eye to the pageantry of emotion, spinning golden threads of lyric and melody, unapologetically romantic, each inflection and melisma planned and considered, the drama of love and the mysteries of everyday life with a disarming mixture of sincerity and cosmic insolence, each word tailored for meaning and effect-the pop gesture as art form.
With hard work and the alchemy of circumstance, they crafted an unassuming masterpiece-a real stunner that sounds both thoroughly out-of-time and impossibly fresh. Natalie prass is the kind of artist spacebomb was created for-a songwriter's songwriter and performer's performer blessed with a golden voice and universal appeal-a singer who understands the vision and brings an undeniable talent to the process.
