‘Found Myself’ is the follow-up to the hugely successful single ‘Hearts in a Cage’, achieving playlist status on Jazz FM and receiving wide support across BBC 6Music and BBC Radio2.
This next slice of modern British soul/jazz from Fallen Tree arrives with a masterful broken beat rework from Tru Thoughts Records signing, WheelUP.
For the recording of new songs for Fallen Tree 1Hundred, releasing every few months throughout 2022, Natalie teamed up with musician friends close to her heart – Long-time collaborators Richard Spaven on drums and Alan Mian on bass, along with synth programmer Laurence Jepson, guitarist Rashaan Brown and up and coming producer/engineer in the studio, Chris Hewitt.
On remix duties for ‘Found Myself’, Tru Thoughts mainstay Danny Wheeler aka WheelUP brings a touch of West London, broken beat swagger to the table with a dancefloor-led remix for the summer. Drums and additional production on the mix come from Bugz in the Attic legend, Afronaut.
“I wrote the main riff running throughout the bulk of the song using electric piano and then layered other synths. I found myself feeling nostalgic about a simpler time… Being a young child in the 90s and coming into my teenage rebellious years. The song is about recognising that looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses, only gives you one perspective, usually a positive one. We edit out the painful stuff… I really wanted to collaborate with a rapper on one of these new songs and I knew it needed to be a rich, female voice – Lauren Marshall was the obvious choice! What she brings to the song is just so poetic and beautiful…” – Natalie Duncan.
‘Found Myself’ is released on 19th August 2022 on Fallen Tree 1Hundred.
