Natalie Shay Releases New EP “MILK”: Streaming
- London-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Natalie Sha has released her highly anticipated new EP “MILK” along with a new music video for “Heaven”.
The EP is her first project in two years since the 2020 EP “NAKED”.
She wrote the EP between 2020 and early 2021. The EP comprises 6-track, produced by Kaity Rae, Will Paterson, Sfven, Jonathan Vears and George Gianluca.
Inspired by the theme of growth, “MILK” makes reference to the lyrics “Milk Teeth” in “Good Girl Behaviour”.
Natalie Shay said of the 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.”
She continued, “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, changed and made my life.”
- Natalie Shay explained of some tracks for the EP.
“Wrote this song with my long time special friend Kaity Rae who also produced it After a relationship, there's that little period of time where you need to find your way, then the new wave comes and it's a super exciting start of something new”.
“The lyrics are written so that if I told you the whole song was about an addictive relationship, it would make sense. But if I also told you the whole song was about recreational drug use, every line would still make sense. The song captures the essence of a bittersweet relationship. I played with the idea that just because a relationship isn't “good,” it doesn't necessarily mean it's totally unhealthy. I was very stuck in my own head and emotions at the time of writing, it was an uncertain time and I'd been doing a lot of thinking and growing up.”
“It's honest and autobiographical, I wanted to write about something a bit deeper and more complex, something more relatable to anyone at any age in any relationship, whether it's your high school sweetheart or your married partner”.
“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.”
