Already a prominent public figure in Sweden, Natali Felicia recently released new single ‘Say It’, taken from her forthcoming debut album; which will be out via Antifragile Music. The album is shaping up to be a stunning body of work. There’s a focus on huge cinematic soundscapes and dramatic glacial tones, which are arguably influenced by the current turmoil of the world.
Projecting herself into her music, it’s a record that showcases Natali Felicia as one of the smartest and most interesting new voices emerging from Stockholm. But music wasn’t always the dream. She found her way to music via a move to Stockholm in her mid teens, swapping a figure skating passion for a guitar. “Music was never my main subject in school, but quite fast I started to find myself entering different musical forums in Stockholm. I joined the school choir, then a gospel choir”.
When she began writing her own songs and playing them live at open mic nights, things started to click. “Singing and music became a natural source of expression for me”, she said.
‘Say It’ is a subversive pop anthem and an act of solidarity with all those fighting repression. She urges the listener to speak without fear and not silence themselves. The urgency in Natali Felicia’s voice and the song’s martial rhythm highlights the powerful message.
Speaking about the track, she said it’s simply a song about people uniting to be stronger together; “I wanted to paint a vision of people joining forces. Ready to speak up and fight together. We are, and will always be, stronger together”.
