Whilst Nat Oaks is from rural Gloucestershire, she doesn’t want this to hold her back – this passion and drive is the main inspiration behind her latest single ‘London Town.’ Oaks has many different inspirations. Whilst her music is in the urban field, she wants to break down genre barriers and nod to lyrical inspirations. Synths reverberate warmth around the track, giving the perfect foundations for her silky smooth voice to dance on top of. She showcases her versatility but combining her vocals with a sharp and smartly written rap that can be found in the verses. Drums are infectious and with all elements combined, a signature groove is penned.
Speaking further about the release she says: “London Town is all about ambition. Having somewhere you want to get to and constantly striving for it. I’m a bit of a workaholic, but the buzz that London brings keeps me really excited and makes me want to work every day.
It’s also a tribute to the kids from my hometown of Gloucester. It can sometimes feel like a dead end but I just want the young ones there to know that they can do anything they want if they put their minds to it. It gets frustrating when young people are put down. They just need that one person to believe in them. I hope I’m at least that one person they know has their back.”
It’s obvious that Nat Oaks is clear about her own direction and where she wants her dream to take her to. Her EP ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ has already introduced her to an international audience, so the reception has been extremely positive. With this and her incredible work ethic combined, there’s nothing going to stop her reaching the top.
