There’s never enough music in the world for us to listen to, so if you’re looking for something new to give your playlist a makeover, let us introduce you to Dylan, your new favorite indie queen.
Natasha Woods AKA Dylan is a new singer who has been discovered by and signed with Grumpy Old Management, best known to a little known artist named Ed Sheeran.
While there’s not a lot of information about the 19-year-old, according to her Facebook, she is a ‘self-proclaimed, out and proud “indie fuck” with the voice of a bruised, toughened angel.’ Oh, and you’ll never catch her in a skirt. She first started her writing and recording sessions a little over ago during the Easter holidays when she should have been revising for her A-levels. Now that’s pretty badass.
Her second single, ‘Sour Milk’, is a moody, contemporary pop track that is currently playing all week on BBC Radio 1 thanks to BBC Music’s Introducing, so clearly she is a force to be reckoned with! We recommend you start stanning now so you have the ultimate bragging rights of being a fan since the early days.
Talking about the single, Dylan says “Sour Milk is about the push and pull of a relationship; not wanting someone when they’re around but craving them when they’re distant.”
It seems her relationship habits are oh-so-familiar for many of us, too. “I tend to find stupid reasons to call it quits with someone, and then immediately regret it when they leave; it’s a constant rollercoaster of feelings and not knowing what you want.”
When it comes to her new EP, ‘Purple’, Dylan explains: “It’s such a dark, deep, rich colour. So it’s the theme for the songs: the colour of bruises, and mystery… and, to be honest, of Will’s [Hicks, her producer] studio!”
Dylan is a woman full of ambition. “I want to be heard by as many people as possible because I want to go global, because I want to speak to as many girls as possible – and boys. They need to hear this too! Let’s all be empowered by a sad song, and connect with it. I want to spark real, human emotion. Everyone is connected through music, right? Or, they should be.”
You’re spot on, Dylan, they really should be!
Dylan’s EP, ‘Purple’, releases October 25th.
