If you’re one for convention then you’ll be surprised by what Nashville-based Lurie has to offer on this harmonious release

No Mercy In The Night by Natalie LurieNatalie Lurie is a Nashville-based songwriter with a style that’s a little different to what you might be expecting. Taking the harp as her weapon of choice, her brand of indie-pop is closer to the work of Joanna Newsom than Willie Nelson.

Beginning with twinkling finger-picking and controlled vocals, No Mercy In The Night takes pity on your ears. It’s gentle, delicate and – like the work of indie’s most renowned harpist – full of pop charm. Unlike Newsom, though, Lurie is unabashed in her happiness to be occupying a radio-friendly territory.

There’s a real grace and effortlessness to Lurie’s songwriting; nothing is forced about No Mercy In The Night and it will catch your ear with complete ease. Sitting firmly in the poppier camp of indie, this is a song in which you’ll find much to like, if your poison is melody and harmony.

Verdict: Regal and melodic indie-pop
