“What sets Ms Haws apart is being abrasive and edgy and funny and outrageous and sassy- as well as being sensitive and melodic. What a great talent and lovely songwriter. She has the potential to be enormous”.
Tom Robinson- BBC Introducing 6music
NATASHA HAWS releases her debut EP Saturday
12th May via bunkeruk records
“The vocals are distinct and verging upon haunting, not so much striking a nerve as mercilessly ripping it from your underserving body, whilst remaining utterly admirable throughout. In the infamous words of Clive Tyldesley; remember the name: Natasha Haws”
Natasha Haws EP launch takes place Saturday 12th May at Sunderland Minster Church
After party at The Little Room, Independent with Guest DJ’s The Futureheads & Lilliput
“Still only 17, Natasha Haws plays spine-tingling folk music that belies her tender years. Her sound is comparable to Laura Marlings early work but it is clear with her lyrics that Haws is an artist with her own identity”
“What was once a tenderly strummed ode to a painfully one sided relationship has morphed into an altogether more urgent and rueful lament, as gorgeous layers of Natasha’s spectral tones echo hauntingly over her lightly teased acoustic throughout. Once these three blissful, splendidly textured minutes have ebbed away, the only thing left to do is hit the ‘play’ button once more”.
“Indeed Haws’ stand-out quality is her voice which almost breaks your heart a little. Beautifully fragile, it swoons over a gently plucked guitar, yet there’s an underlying sense of strength and self-awareness which prevents her music from becoming too saccharine. There’s no over-blown theatrics here, just real, honest song-writing”
“Natasha Haws makes stripped-down yet endlessly epic songs that are as close and breathy as they are widescreen and distant. Big/small. Clever”.
