Forlorn Strangers release bright folk rock jam "Natalie Cole"

Forlorn Strangers release bright folk rock jam "Natalie Cole"

 You guessed it- "Natalie Cole" is partially about the death of singer and actress Natalie Cole (yep, that's Nat King Cole's daughter.) Indie folk rockers Forlorn Strangers have built a funky, folksy arrangement (featuring a mellotron?) around what could be a pretty dark song. "I don't wanna feel this anymore / all the things I ever loved before / are slipping through my hands" is a relatable lyric in the singable, hooky chorus. But even the most existential lyrics are paired with bright melodies and warm chord progressions. -Geena Kloeppel
