Stream ‘Fortress’ the new single
“Quickly buries itself under your skin with its mechanically brushed drums and jazz-inflected pangs of lovesick fragility.”
“Mesmerising lilt-pop gem.”
The Sunday Times
“Sure to cement McCool’s status as one of the country’s most promising songwriters.”
Having risen through the ranks of the UK indie world, championed by pop stars and indie icons and collaborated with Suede legend Bernard Butler on her stunning 2013 self-titled album, the inimitable Natalie McCool returns with brand new single ‘Fortress’.
McCool’s breed of slick alternative pop has won acclaim from tastemakers including The Sunday Times, Q, Clash, Line of Best Fit and the 405, as well as Huw Stephens and Alice Levine, while BBC Introducing described the edgy artist as “one of the finest emerging songwriters around”.
The singer-songwriter’s brilliant debut was built on a foundation of deliciously dark, gloomy indie-pop, but ‘Fortress’ is an awakening – emerging from the shadows and rising victoriously. Produced by Rich Turvey(Blossoms, Clean Cut Kit, VITAMIN), ‘Fortress’ swells and shimmers, culminating in a jubilant cascading crescendo, McCool’s rich, rousing lead vocals soaring across an epic backdrop.
McCool will be heading out on tour throughout Spring this year.
