On her tender new song "Your Girl," Natasha Kmeto feels like she's nestled right inside your head. The Portland-based experimental pop artist first made waves with her 2013 debut LP Crisis, but her sophomore album Inevitable—out via Dropping Gems on September 18—finds her truly owning her voice. "Your Girl" is the purest example yet of that fresh candor: over synths that zig-zag and sparkle with the nervousness that comes with admitting such a frank emotion, she sings softly: I always wanted to be your girl. The effect is both delicate and powerful, like the shiver of a whisper in your ear. "This song I wrote about leaving my partner to go tour," Kmeto wrote to The FADER over email. "I think it's as close to a pop lullaby as I'll ever get to writing.” Listen below.
