Los Angeles-based indie/electronic vocalist NAT impressed on her recent standout single, “Hold Me Close,” and her bubbly follow-up “Escape” also hits the sweet electronic pop spot.
Featuring natural chemistry between NAT and featured crooner Jack Merucci, “Escape” is a delightful slice of real-life reflection on past romances. The intimate lyrical honesty shines through each artist while the production swirls with colorful charm.
Offering us a detailed glimpse into her mind, NAT spills details about the song’s lyrics: ““Escape” holds a double meaning for me. On surface level, it literally chronicles nights with my girlfriend when we’d decide to escape from a party because we prefer to be with each other, sober and alone.”
“The second meaning is more important to me however: I had been caught up in toxic, demeaning relationships, and this new person in my life showed me that I deserved more. She became my escape.”
NAT has made a name for herself with revealing songs that reflect her authentic experiences as an LGBT+ individual, walking us through a dizzying array of topics from, past flings to popping parties, and “Escape” affirms this ethos in style.
