There's something about disillusionment that comes with chasing your dreams. The hopefulness and the faith that you hope everything will work out can always be twinged with just a little bit of sadness and malcontent. I think that we always want to focus on the positive but in the back of our minds there's always that bit of self doubt. The slow, methodical tempo leads an air to the whole feeling of anxiety and uncertainty. Sometimes we are in need of songs that aren't necessarily bubblegum because life isn't always sunshine and rainbows. Here's the thing.... you can't reap the rewards without the chances and risks. They may be the most terrifying and uncertain things and you may find yourself in a situation where you can't predict the outcome but those are the times when you grow and learn more about yourself than you knew before. You open yourself up for opportunities and experiences that you may not have had previously.
"City of Gold"
is the latest single to be released by Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Natalie Major. While this song may have a bit of darkness woven through it, there's also that Yan to the Yin in that you have to hope for the best and you have to make sure you're going for the risks to make sure you're getting out of life what you put into it. She's got a voice that is beautifully haunting with an eloquence to it that you don't find in many artists today. She doesn't have that post production feel to her vocals where you can hear where the track has been cleaned up and made to sound better. I like the easy feel to the song. It's not a song that you're going to dance to but you're going to get sucked in and hear every nuance in Natalie's vocals and her presentation. I feel like this is an incredible track and it could be remixed into something darker or something more upbeat. The single releases on Friday August 25th and it's going to be a huge release for Natalie. With a voice like hers it's not hard to think that she's going to be crashing the major pop markets soon. Catch her on the rise because I have a feeling that she's going to be huge.
