It doesn’t get more ethereal than Natalie Walker’s vocals on her latest, With You. The music is infused with electro atmospheric beats and transcends most typical female pop soundscapes. There are slightly haunting, trip hop moments on tracks like “Crush,” while “Over and Under” takes an opposite turn, with a synth-based, New Wave sparkle. Though “Lost My Shadow” sticks out as somewhat odd, channelling mid-80′s Annie Lennox in an obscure way, it’s safe to say that overall, Walker is in her element on this eclectic, light and breezy album.
