Nat Torn – Nothing In Your Life (feat. Max Barker)
Super groovy track from singer/songwriter Nat Torn and producer Max Barker from New York. The percussive arrangement and bass elements are super groovy, then melancholy strings come in and NAT’s sultry vocals bring us back down to earth, only to slowly bring us back up to the FUNK. The moment around 1:23 really got me going. This section had me feeling a Disclosure/future house vibe that was uniquely accompanied by string riffs. The vocals from Nat Torn have a similar indie vibe that made me think of Abby Diamond.
Nat and Max’s story started in New York when they matched on J-Swipe and decided to meet for coffee. They “hugged, sat down, and traded headphones” and listened to each other’s original music. Many subway rides and bedroom recording sessions later, they have released their first child.
