by Walter Price
The familiarity and insecurities of trying to navigate an uneven relationship have been the fuel behind an endless amount of your favorite songs. But rarely do they hit as solidly as UK indie-rocker Natalie Shay’s recent single, “Not The Girl”. No misplaced and complicated innuendos muttering up the songwriter’s memories, creating a straightforward soundtrack for your next romantic epiphany or hurdle. And it’s as reflective as it is sincere and, ultimately, empowering…
The accompanying video, directed by James George Potter, tells the tale of laying yourself on the line, out in the open for all to see your frailties, strengths, and truths. Its imagery could have been ripped straight from top zeitgeist shows like Sex Education, Girls or Skins. Replete with an interesting and memorable motley crew of characters.
“Not The Girl” is from the forthcoming EP, ‘Naked’, expected 17 April 2020. And if you’re a fan of Skating Polly, She Makes War and(or tasty guitar licks, then this will fit your Spring/Summer playlist nicely.
