Nat Vazer: Grateful – IWD track of the day

Today’s track of the day is ‘Grateful’ by Melbourne’s Nat Vazer – the perfect song for International Women’s Day! In her own words …

“‘Grateful’ is an ode to all the inspiring female artists and role models out there, and a vent about the ongoing uphill battle for social equality. It’s about acknowledgement and respect, with a sprinkle of sarcasm and the kind of non-conformist attitude that used to make my Year 10 English teacher say, ‘girls like you are exactly what’s wrong with the world.’ In my head this song takes place in a hot, cowboy-esque desert town with smokey synths and tambourines in the same vein as The Brian Jonestown Massacre. In writing the guitar and drum parts, my artist child took a trip down memory lane and revisited old influences like Nirvana, The Dandy Warhols and The Beatles who had a real influence on my early days of guitar playing as a teen.”
