  • Findlay - 'Greasy Love EP'
4 / 10
In September, Natalie Findlay made a surprise appearance on the London Evening Standard Power 1000 list alongside King Krule and Disclosure. Even though the Mancunian has supported Jake Bugg and Miles Kane it’s a stretch to cite her as a musician of any great influence. Sure, she can thrash out a tune (see the title track), but her brand of strutting rock’n’roll feels forced as she caterwauls over by-the-numbers riffs. The only glimmer of hope is ‘Fake Black Heart’, sounding more like Findlay’s early singles with a hint of PJ Harvey hidden between the guitar lines. If Findlay wants to be as influential as her peers, she’s got a long way to go.
