What can you fit within the Americana genre these days? Well, almost anything and everything, which probably inspired Texas singer-songwriter Natalie Price to label her latest self-titled, full-length debut release as “Ameri-Kinda.”
This is quite an apt description of the ten songs here – something that surely has roots in, well, roots music but reaches to cover and include a wider pop ground.
In Price’s case that means a focus on a really listenable melodies that at the same time exhibit a high-level of complexity that makes her songs quite individual.
Price herself names Muse, First Aid Kit, Pedro The Lion, and David Ramirez (who appears on this record) as her influences and you can sense The First Aid Kit melodicism and Muse, song structures and David Bazan’s lyricism somewhere in there but mixed in the way Price feels and wants it coming up with some, well, “Ameri-Kinda” music.
