FRESH: ‘Escape’ – NAT feat. Jack Merucci

NAT finds her “Escape” with Jack Merucci

Indie-electronic vocalist NAT continues to establish herself as an essential voice in 2020 on “Escape”, a beautiful new single with colorful, pop-sensible production and a Jack Merucci-assisted duet to match. On the meaning behind the song, NAT explains, “Escape holds a double meaning for me. On surface level, it literally chronicles nights with my girlfriend when we’d decide to escape from a party because we prefer to be with each other sober & alone. The second meaning is more important to me however: I had been caught up in toxic, demeaning relationships, and this new person in my life showed me that I deserved more. She became my escape”.

Reflective of exhilaration and heartbreak alike, NAT has proven herself to be a dynamic talent who traverses diverse subjects and sounds. Continually championing a profound level of honesty with her experiences as an LGBTQ+ individual, past girlfriends and parties hold equal weight in her enthralling songwriting. Her most recent single, “Hold Me Close”, was immediately praised by Girl Underground Music for a sound that “grasps tight onto self-love” and by Son of Marketing as “a colorfully forthright anthem with bittersweet undertones of love and longing”. With a meticulously crafted sound and style making its impact, expect more from NAT throughout 2020 and beyond.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
