Born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England, Natalia has been an avid lover of music of all genres since she was young. Influenced by artists like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Blink 182, Alanis Morrisette and Garbage, Natalia started writing poetry and songs from a young age.
She moved from Nuneaton to Hull in East Yorkshire to attend Hull University, and she met a local producer, Lee Dickinson, who is the brain power behind New Relic Records.
With local restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the banning public performances, Natalia has been hard at work in the studio recording her upcoming album, Bookends.
Her recent single; Nation on Fire, recently reached Humber Number One on a local radio station and has been streamed to over 7 thousand listeners all across the world on various stations and podcasts.
Nation on Fire was written the night after the last British general election and is a rock anthem about the evident divide in Britain today: namely, Brexit. When it was first written it sounded very different and lyrics have been carefully crafted. Over time the chorus and the melody were reworked and reshaped to the more catchy melody that you hear today.
It was recorded in one take, which includes cracks in the voice, warts and all, because the anger and tone of song is conveyed in the rage of Natalia’s raw first take.
The B Side to Nation on Fire is called Strange Days and is about life in lockdown.
