“I feel like in lockdown, I learned a lot about myself and growth. In essence, it’s a song sung to my younger self about what I’ve discovered and how I see myself getting through life now. I think it’s important to reflect on the most unique parts of your personality, and as a songwriter, I think transparency comes from writing about your own flaws, not just those of others.” – Natalie Shay explained
‘Heaven’ comes of age in an ode to personal growth, exploring the point in time at which a girl feels like she has become a woman. Shay’s dynamic melodies pair with soaring vocal energy and the layering harmonies bring an overarching warmth to “Heaven.” The familiar acoustic arrangements pair sublimely with Shay’s unique musicality, as her lyrical reflection captures key moments of her life, portraying her personal story across her repertoire.
Natalie Shay – “Milk” EP
“Every track is about growth or new beginnings or reflecting on myself, in particular, heaven and outgrow. I always write from the heart and from my own experiences and stories. My whole aim with lyricism is to connect with others who are in that frame of mind now or have been there in the past to relate. I hope I can inspire other girls, in particular, to get into songwriting as so many female singer/songwriters inspired me to do so and it’s saved, change, and made my life.” – Natalie Shay explained
Inspired by the theme of growth, “Milk” refers to the lyrics Milk Teeth in Good Girl Behaviour. Each track explores different key feelings and experiences sensed when writing during the lockdown. Collaborating with different creatives, there’s an overarching warmth to Milk. Shay’s melodious abilities soar with catharsis, as she strives to capture key moments of her life through her music. At her core, she’s a remarkable storyteller, one that continues to break boundaries and trailblaze into her own realm of indie pop from the soul.
