Compared to the likes of PJ Harvey and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, Manchester’s Natalie Findlay’s original sound revisits 90s grunge and shoegaze with a mix of hip-hop and garage pop.

Findlay draws from her love of Motown artists, psychedelic rock, blues and hip hop to create unique electronic soundscapes that incorporate strange sounds and new distortions, carried by her addictive choruses.

Her debut album Forgotten Pleasures sees her collaborate with an impressive list of producers, musicians and songwriters including Carl Barat of the Libertines, Jake Gosling (The Libertines, Ed Sheeran), Samy Osta (Woman, Fire Chatterton, Rover!) and Flood (Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins). The album jitters with Findlay’s indie rock influences – Beck, Tame Impala, The Velvet Underground – the result is an album that blends the male-dominated rock sound of yesteryear with a the indomitable spirit of a girl who isn’t to be reckoned with.
