Natasha Hunt Lee – Half Baked

One of California’s most exciting pop prospects to have emerged recently has been LA-based singer and songwriter Natasha Hunt Lee.

With critical praise from heavyweight tastemakers as notable as Ones To Watch, PAPER and Wonderland, it’s been quite the year for this deservedly much-hyped artist. Elaborating further on today’s release of new single ‘Half Baked’, Hunt Lee explains

“‘Half Baked’ is about the in-between – when you aren’t necessarily writhing in pain but you’ve definitely been better. It’s coming from the perspective of someone who is finally ok enough to ruminate more objectively than emotionally. But there’s a weird numbness to that. It’s about going out, putting on the same show, but knowing that a deep sense of fulfilment or wonder or naivety or whatever is it has been temporarily taken. And hoping that (but not knowing how) it will come back.”

The single follows on from of Hunt Lee’s The End of the World debut EP, which was released earlier this autumn and has already amassed more than 300k streams.

New Music: Natasha Hunt Lee

I’m so excited to be welcoming this hugely promising new talent to the Alfitude pages. Natasha Hunt Lee is a rapidly rising Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, who is currently crafting some of the finest, rawest and most captivating pieces of pop you could imagine.

Latest single “New Things” was co-produced by platinum certified artist Jeremy Zucker and artist-producer Max Hershenow (MS MR, Ryn Weaver, Claud).

“‘New Things’ is about the way somebody can embed themselves into your life so much so that a physical ending doesn’t really affect their existence within it. I think a lot of people recognise the suffocating nature of constantly being reminded of someone, remembering them through all the things that you shared. And the more important someone is to you, the more of those things you have to either avoid, redefine, or accept. Does that make sense? Maybe that’s overthinking it. Ok so, ‘New Things’ is about getting your heart broken and how f*king shitty it feels.”

“We really wanted to emulate the spectrum of emotion within all of that. The sadness, defeat, hope here and there, and also a sense of overwhelming anger.”
