Natureboy: Pariah (MP3)

“Pariah” is the first single from Natureboy’s eponymous debut released for the first time outside Europe last November 15. The track shows off Natureboy’s stately acoustic folk talent made lusher by layers of instruments and most importantly by the evocative vocal work featured on the track, a very distinct voice that sounds arresting yet comforting at the same time. This collaboration of robust vocal work and guitar backed up by cinematic moods of synth, loops and sampling are all over the record which compels me to devote more time listening to the record in full, current favorites  are “Famous Sons,” “Curses Fired” and “Dither.”

Natureboy is Sara Kermanshahi, a first generation American of Iranian descent, originally from Seattle and settled in New York in 2007. The move ignited her vision for Natureboy after a stint in House On A Hill together with Masterface‘s Cedar Apffel, now her label mate on Bleek Records.

Natureboy has performed with other independent well-knowns like Magnolia Electric Co., School of Seven Bells and Marissa Nadler and has set out a European tour conquering stages in Paris, Berlin, and Copenhagen back in 2010 which first got a taste of her self-titled debut. Currently, she is working for her sophomore record to be released in February next year.
