Natalie McCool plays Cambridge – Preview

Previews McCool brings new record to The Portland

Having risen through the ranks of the UK indie world, championed by pop stars and indie icons and collaborated with Suede legend Bernard Butler on her stunning 2013 self-titled album, Natalie McCool returned this month with brand new album ‘The Great Unknown’. The album is now being supported by a full UK tour which takes in Cambridge’s The Portland Arms on Monday 26th, tickets available here.

McCool’s breed of slick alternative pop has won acclaim from tastemakers including The Sunday Times, Wonderland, Q, Clash, Line of Best Fit and the 405, as well as Huw Stephens and Alice Levine, while BBC Introducing described the edgy artist as”one of the finest emerging songwriters around”.

The singer-songwriter’s brilliant debut was built on a foundation of deliciously dark, gloomy indie-pop, but ‘The Great Unknown’ is an awakening – emerging from the shadows and rising victoriously with a number of prickly pop tunes like Huw Stephens favourite ‘Pins’ and rousing epic numbers like ‘Fortress’ sandwiching subtly emotive songs such as Radio One playlisted ‘Cardiac Arrest’.
