Nat Oaks releases infectious new single "Retriever"

Nat Oaks' unique and signature take on urban music has been celebrated by fans and tastemakers alike. Hailing from Gloucester, Nat Oaks often takes inspiration the South West's vibrant TripHop scene - a sound that provides a very strong foundation in her music. The likes of Loyle Carner, Lauryn Hill and Frank Ocean can also be found within her music, however, it's very clear that she has her own unique, irresistible sound.

Speaking about this, she says: “I put myself in the sphere of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Arlo Parks and Queen Latifah. I really take inspiration from these women, and owe a lot of the inspiration for my musicality to them. I see myself fitting in as a black queer feminist, which is what my music really speaks to.

Her infectious sound can be heard on her latest offering "Retriever." The track features a vibrant melting pot of hard-hitting drums, understated guitar lines and heartwarming synths. Whilst on top, her vocals are softly-penned but impactful, working hand in glove with well-penned lyrics.

Speaking about the track, she shares: “I wrote this song as a reflection on a lack of reciprocation in relationships, where the balance just isn't there. I also wanted to focus on abstract imagery so that each person listening can put themselves in the song and see where they deserve more in whatever relationships they have.”

Nat Oaks has developed an infamous live show, playing the likes of Love Saves The Day and Wireless Festival. With everything in place, we think that 2023 is gearing up to be Nat’s year.
