NATHALIE ARCHANGEL, “The Prettier Things”
After a couple of well-received dance hits a few weeks back, including the Billboard-charting “A Higher High”, Southern California-based singer Nathalie Archangel returns with a diverse new alterna-pop album The Prettier Things, which is led by the powerful, dramatic song of the same name. “The Prettier Things” offers a lot of surprises, without going full throttle over the top. Nathalie’s playful Stevie Nicks-meets-Cyndi Lauper voice takes full advantage of Charlie Mason’s tease-me, dare-me lyrics amid production that flirts with the 80’s while maintaining a firm theatrical edge. In the album, you’ll also find the disco mix of “A Higher High” and other tasty but wry selections like previous single “Unleashed” and “Queen Of Hearts”.
