Following the success of her recent ‘Black and White’ EP, whose title track has seen acclaim from The Sunday Times, gifted songstress Natalie Duncan returns with her new single, ‘Kingston', released on 24th July.
Having departed from the style which saw her give a stunning piano-driven performance on ‘Later With…Jools Holland’ in 2012, Natalie has continued to experiment with more contemporary modes of songwriting that create a similar vibe to that of artists such as FKA Twigs and Kelela.
‘Kingston’ showcases Natalie’s brilliant consistency in higher vocal ranges, whilst also exploring the electronic manipulation of her characteristically raw voice. The track’s production matches her heartfelt songwriting, opening with deep piano chords, gentle bass and minimal percussion that further demonstrate her remarkable sonic progression.
Having previously drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Radiohead, Natalie’s sound has developed radically since the release of her debut album ‘Devil in Me’, which garnered praise from publications such as Q Magazine and MOJO. Yet experimentation has always been at the focus of her songwriting approach, with The Sunday Times noting her ability to leap ‘stylistically from Chopin to Scott Joplin, or Michel Legrand to Portishead, in the space of just one song’.
