New song: Natalie McCool – Someone Nue

Written about the dread felt at the realisation that something’s coming to an end, Natalie McCool’s lastest single ‘Someone Nue’ is more intent on starting new adventures rather than lingering in the past. With a cool, off-handedness akin to Christine and The Queens, McCool effortlessly flouts her words over glimmering synths. A vocal riff frames the chorus, bending and contorting wonderfully around McCool’s merciless declaration, “I wanna be with someone new.” Her voice acquires more depth as the song climaxes, soulfully singing “I’m sorry that the world is ending.” Our dramatic weather conditions suggest that McCool might be right, but at least this alt-pop gem exists to shine a beacon of light on our ill-fated universe.
