The Me I Pretend To Be
For fans of 90s Madonna and The 1975, Natalie Gray has an established movement of fans that eagerly await new material. The Me I Pretend To Be is the latest output and after just a couple of weeks is gaining serious attention with listeners new and long-term. Known for up-beat synthpop that wanders over onto BBC radio, this latest number takes a polar opposite approach to the fizzy drink style of previous releases. The Me I Pretend To Be looks at the world through the lens of PTSD and hiking through the mental jungle looking for the temple of the old self. Spoiler alert, you are the temple.
A cosy melody reminiscent of ice-cream chimes reels open as lush synthesiser fills the underneath with vibrant and warm tones. A guitar adds a funky chord rhythm as atmospheric melodics resound in poignant scales. Vocal unfolds like colourful fabric, silky and reflective, a sound of homely vulnerability forms a dreamy and girl-next-door sense of companionship. The music gracefully churns like a slow-moving river taking a long corner towards the sea. Ghostly sensations reverberate in drum-breaks and subtle harmonies within the foundation of music from which the song projects its drama.
