Following on from the success of her spellbinding new album ‘Memory Girl‘ in recent months, which has since received praise from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, CLASH, Bido Lito, and many more, fast-rising alt-pop artist Natalie McCool now returns to deliver the shimmering new video for one of the record’s standout offerings ‘Devils’.
As one of the album’s more energetic cuts, ‘Devils’ sees the artist take a more vibrant approach to these new visuals. Isolated on a dimly lit stage, Natalie shows off her captivating live persona as she rattles through this new release, demanding your attention with every frame.
Adding about the new song, she said, “Devils is essentially about allowing yourself every once in a while to give into emotions that are traditionally seen as negative, and that’s okay, because we are only human and need to experience and accept these feelings to be whole. I think giving someone the space and support to say anything and everything they are experiencing or thinking, and for that also to be ok, is an amazing way to accept and move on. In a way its taking away the stigma and shame of these feelings and turning the experience into something positive that will make you stronger.”
Following her recent sold out Liverpool show Natalie has announced a date at Future Yard, Birkenhead on 21st October. Tickets on sale now. Ahead of that she will be performing at Focus Wales on 7th October.
Natalie McCool is also running her new Memory Girl Project, where she is asking fans to submit their inspiration for a song she plans to record and release as a standalone single after the album release.

2019 proved to be a transitional year for Liverpool based artist Natalie McCool, and 2020 saw her forging a new path for herself, having built a strong foundation to achieve great things. Her early single ‘Someone Nue’ saw her invited to support Aurora and She Drew The Gun, alongside playing many of her own headline shows across the UK. Her cover of ‘Wondrous Place’ by Liverpool legend Billy Fury was chosen by Sky to head up the advertising campaign for their highly-praised drama series ‘The Third Day’, a collaboration with HBO starring Jude Law and Naomie Harris, and produced by Brad Pitt’s production company.

Natalie also hosts a monthly podcast series called McCool & the Gang, to explore different parts of the music industry with featured guests she has collaborated with in some form or another, including BBC 6 Musics Chris Hawkins, Pixey, She Drew The Gun, Whyte Horses, Shell Zenner and Cleancut Kid to name a few.
The LIPA graduate released her previous album ‘The Great Unknown’ in 2016, which saw media support from the likes of The Sunday Times, Q and The Line of Best Fit. Her single ‘Cardiac Arrest’ was also playlisted on BBC Radio 1 in the lead up to the release of the album.
