Natalie McCool – America
We’re big fans of young Widnes guitarist and singer songwriter Natalie McCool, signed to Grammy Award winning producer Steve Levine‘s label Hubris Records. Writing gorgeous big pop ballads that reveal a mind and musical sensibility far beyond her years, inspired by our favourite TV show Game Of Thrones (listen for the references in Fortune, below) and having spent an afternoon brainstorming with Sir Paul McCartney on this very track she’s a sure fire hit in our opinion. So why no daytime radio play on Radio 2? Or Radio 1? Hollyoaks have featured her a few times and they KNOW their audience. Sigh. The radio peeps will catch up soon enough.
The Shh – All Things With Love
The Shh are Alison Galea & Ian Schranz of Maltese/ Parisian outfit Beangrowers. The Burning Love EP is a little something they quietly put out a few months ago and we revisited on the show on Sunday, where it was unanimously decided that such a strong indie offering deserved a big up on FOTN. Joyous but with slightly ominous overtones, it’s indie pop with a respectful nod to American surf rock and Alison’s beautiful vocal sets it leagues apart from it’s contemporaries. Someone get onto it, there’s an audience ready and waiting!
