We are heading into the second half of this year, which signals festival season is here and there are plenty of summer songs rolling in. As tastemakers and pop aficionados who always have our eyes looking forward, it also means the search for emerging artists to watch, begins to hot up. Actually, I have a great pop singer to bring to your attention today. Among the mid-summer madness, trying to catch a break with her debut release “Exactly What You Want“, is Scottish singer thisisNAMASTE (Natasha Marie Stewart).
I have no hesitation saying this of the song. I am sure it will be on your lips in no time at all. It is particularly catchy, pure pop, with sweet lyrics about not trying to be ultimate relationship goals. thisisNAMASTE wants us to get real because no one is that perfect.
“This song is about me disclosing early on in a relationship that if you want me to be polished, and perfect all the time, that just isn’t going to happen, but if you want someone to hang out and have a lot of fun with, and don’t mind that same someone may potentially steal your food and clothes from time to time, then I’m the perfect girl for you! In the era of ‘#RelationshipGoals’ plastered across social media, I thought it would be fun to write a song with a light-hearted take on the realities of most people in a comfortable relationship.” thisisNAMASTE
This is the singer’s first time out on her own. Prior experience as a backing vocalist for the likes of Rita Ora, Ella Eyre, Bebe Rexha and Martin Garrix, means she is pretty much a made to measure pop star, ready to go slay. With this track co-written and produced by Adam Argyle, (Olly Murs, James Bay, Dua Lipa), and her confident, charismatic vocals as an indication of what she can do. And because the music is fresh, pure and intelligent. I think we would be best to keep a keen eye on her. There are good feelings within the music. Good feelings, in her potential. In fact, all around, good feelings, where pop newcomer thisisNAMASTE is concerned.
