    The songs were written, the band was ready, and the studio was booked. Fans and critics alike were eagerly awaiting the follow-up to Natalie Prass’s 2015 self-titled breakout album, a collection hailed by NPR as “a majestic debut,” but perhaps no one was more eager for record number two than Prass herself. She’d waited what felt like a lifetime to release that first album and then toured the world relentlessly behind it, sharing bills with the likes of Fleet Foxes and The War on Drugs on her way to becoming one of the year’s most talked-about artists. By the time recording sessions were scheduled to begin, she was absolutely dying to launch the next chapter, which made what happened next all the more shocking: she scrapped the whole thing.

    “The record was ready to go, and then the election happened,” explains Prass. “I was devastated. It made me question what it means to be a woman in America, whether any of the things I thought were getting better were actually improving, who I am and what I believe in. I knew I would be so upset with myself if I didn’t take the opportunity to say some of the things that meant so much to me, so I decided to rewrite the record. I needed to make an album that was going to get me out of my funk, one that would hopefully lift other people out of theirs, too, because that’s what music is all about.”

    The result is ‘The Future And The Past,’ a stunning work of art and a powerful feminist statement from an artist who’s only just begun to tap into the full range of her considerable powers. Reuniting Prass with producer and long-time friend Matthew E. White, the album is at once celebratory and defiant, capturing all the joy, frustration, fear and hope inherent in modern womanhood as it synthesizes the influence of everything from vintage gospel and 80’s pop to 90’s R&B and Brazilian Tropicália. Prass displays a rare gift for transcending time and place in her songwriting, tapping into age-old struggles for autonomy and equality that resonate profoundly in the present.

  • Bantug

    Bantug

    Indie Pop

    Bantug is an independent artist out of Nashville, Tennessee, and has been creating music in some capacity for as long as she can remember. She started playing her brother’s drum kit at age four, learned to play guitar by age eight, and went on to play double bass in her middle school’s orchestra. Around this same time, Bantug branched out and began developing her songwriting skills. As her lyrics and melodies continued to develop, so did her passion. 

    Following high school, Bantug moved to Nashville to attend an accelerated music program, but instead, she took a different direction. She found a community of close friends who let her experiment with their different styles of production and engineering, which gave her space to create a sound all her own. Bantug’s first single, “Waiting,” dropped in December of 2015, and she has released her first EP, Blue in March 2017. She’s been featured on Indie Shuffle, Girls Are Awesome, GoodMusicAllDay, and GoldFlakePaint.
