On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, The Edge, Natalie Shay’s newest single, tells the story of how her friendship with her best friend broke down and fell apart completely.
Multi-award-winning musician Natalie Shay is well-known for her explosive live performances and vibrant, infectious songs. The artist from North London writes relatable lyrics about love, self-discovery, and the things a twenty-something goes through every day. She is, at her core, a remarkable storyteller who continues to defy convention and forge her own path into the soulful indie pop realm.
Shay is on everyone’s radar because she has received praise from notable publications like Billboard, Clash, NOTION, Wonderland Magazine, and The Line of Best Fit, to name a few. She has been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist in 12 countries and has collaborated with Grum and Kryder on EDM tracks that have received over seven million streams to date. Shay is one of the UK’s hottest emerging talents, having sold out prestigious London venues.
New song, The Edge, is about Shay’s friendship with her best friend breaking down painfully and completely. Due to the fact that her emotions are still very raw, she hopes this song will provide her with closure. It is one of her favorite songs that she has ever released.
With its kaleidoscopic synths, infectious beat, and energetic melodies, The Edge stays true to her irresistible indie pop sound. Even though the song has a sad theme, its sound makes it the best one for getting up and dancing, letting you get lost in the music.
Everything’s Been Happening
The Edge is accompanied by the B-side single, Everything’s Been Happening, which tells the story of how, once you finally get over something bad for you, you look back and realize that so many cracks were there long before you accepted that it was the case. Natalie Shay is aware that she must honor the power of an apology—and in this instance, the absence of one—in order to still respect herself, despite how much she misses her and the positive aspects of their friendship.
Both songs express an awareness of the influence a person’s dream can have on their happiness and well-being. Natalie admits to being guilty of this. Her work encompasses her entire identity, personality, and mental health in large part. This is also true for many creatives and people who have had a goal or dream since childhood. If you don’t have the courage to face the possibility that your goals won’t go as planned or that things will be much harder than you anticipated, it can be difficult for you. Natalie believes that she and her friend are to blame for this, which led to the downfall.
