Liverpool-based Natalie McCool is set to release a new single on her own Fortress Sounds label, via Ditto Music on the 28th of October 2016. Check out her beautiful voice here.

‘Pins’ was recorded and produced with Dave Berger from Outfit at Schall Und Wahn in Liverpool, featuring additional production and mixes by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Clean Cut Kid, VITAMIN). A favourite of Huw Stephens, the single will be available digitally at all the usual major outlets and is the first track to be lifted from the singer/songwriter and multi-instumentalist’s forthcoming second album: ‘The Great Unknown’ which is set for release in November.

‘Pins’ is the perfect example of future pop that sets Natalie apart from her contemporaries. Her early work was built on a foundation of deliciously dark, gloomy indie-pop. ‘The Great Unknown’ is a new awakening – emerging from the shadows and rising victoriously with a number of prickly pop tunes and subtly emotive songs; without doubt it’s McCool’s finest and most accomplished set to date.

McCool counts The Sunday Times, Wonderland, Q, Clash, Line of Best Fit, The 405, Huw Stephens and Alice Levine amongst her fans, while BBC Introducing described the artist as “one of the finest emerging songwriters around”.

 Having recently completed a successful UK Tour, Natalie and her band will play a special London show as guests of 1883 Magazine at their event at Cargo, Shoreditch on Wednesday the 23rd November 2016. This event will be sponsored by Estrella Galicia, proud to champion the best new music across the UK. There will be complimentary beers for early arriving fans at the gig!

“Quickly buries itself under your skin with its mechanically brushed drums and jazz-inflected pangs of lovesick fragility.”
Q

 “Mesmerising lilt-pop gem.”
The Sunday Times

 “Sure to cement McCool’s status as one of the country’s most promising songwriters.”
The 405

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
