Natalie McCool has picked up a steadily growing support base of fans and critics alike with her truly innovative and beautiful take on pop music.

Perfect future pop that sets Natalie apart from her contemporaries, her early work was built on a foundation of deliciously dark indie-pop. Latest album ‘The Great Unknown’ is an new awakening - emerging from the shadows and rising victoriously with a number of prickly pop tunes like Huw Stephens favourite 'Pins' and rousing epic numbers like 'Fortress' envelop subtly emotive songs such as BBC Radio 1 playlisted 'Cardiac Arrest'.

Vibrant with effortlessly catchy songs, McCool can count The Sunday Times, Wonderland, Q, Clash, Line of Best Fit, The 405, Huw Stephens and Alice Levine amongst her fans, while BBC Introducing described the artist as “one of the finest emerging songwriters around.
