Not enough can be said and definitely not enough has been said about Natty. The soul/R&B musician has just released his single “Streetlights” and it’s a track worth putting on repeat 24/7. Based in London, he has created something perfect for the beach months. Natty’s sound is light, fun, and simple.
“Streetlights” is a song about people’s relationships with each other and with technology. The lyrics really highlight how people’s devotions have shifted, “Oh so far with this technology/ but there’s something missing in the society/ we’ve forgotten about love.” The song is mellow but fun. There is an obvious influence from reggae and hip-hop. The song starts with a quick tempo and continues into a sunshine melody. Something rapid and light that never overpowers itself or the lyrics. Overall, “Streetlights” is incredibly well-produced. It’s impossible to ever be pulled out of the melody and the lyrics are gorgeous and succinct. Natty seems to grab the listener’s hand and pull you along with a smile through the song. This will definitely be your new summer-obsession.
