Released: 1st June 2018
Rating: ★★★★

Natalie Prass is a master of her craft. Whether it’s supremely confident funk grooves or heartbroken country ballads the Richmond, Virginia native always delivers the goods.

This time, on ‘The Future And The Past’, the singer continues down the same rich and luxurious musical path established on her acclaimed self-titled debut but amps up the banger count on some gloriously perky and poised funky cuts like opener ‘Oh My’ and the smooth, assured swing of single ‘Short Court Style’.

The songs contained here are immaculately detailed and display the fine musical tapestry that goes into Prass’ work. There’s added teeth though inspired by the shock election of Donald Trump in 2016 that prompted her to change course and deliver something looking deeply into her emotional psyche and how we can respond positively to such shocking upheaval.

As she sings the powerful hook of “We can take you on”, on stirring album highlight ‘Hot In The Mountain’, it’s clear Natalie Prass is ready for the fight, but she’s going to do it her own sweet way and shine a little light at the same time. Martyn Young
