We first heard about Natalie Carolan last May when she released her proper debut single, “Time“, a break-up song whose direct chorus quite clearly looked at radio playlists.
At the end of the year the Melbourne-based, jazz educated singer announced she’s working on her first album. She also shared a new track, “Vices“, a slow-burning piano ballad with drifting vocals and otherwordly atmosphere.
After another few months she’s back today giving us her best effort yet, a four-minute beauty “She’ll Know How It Goes” produced by James Saunders.
And indeed, the moment she starts, “So the story goes / Again, again,”, you can feel she precisely knows where she wants to take the listener this time.
The story grows gradually from an inconspicious intro to a grand culmination at the end, but Natalie is careful enough not to overdose the main motif to makes you play it, just like she predicted, again and again.
