Indie pop artist Space Nat’s new song “Fish Tacos” is just as raw and beautiful as the moments she sings of, which unfortunately also remind us that life can change and make us wish we could freeze time.
“Fish Tacos” is “a song that captures an instance, painting a picture of bliss turning to chaos and perfectly capturing the stillness that is calm before the storm,” Space Nat says. “A song that pays tribute to and honors a seemingly trivial sentence that turned into a breaking point. An honest love story and an appropriate goodbye.”
Her classical training shines through, yet she still emanates a genuine singer-songwriter dreamy pop feel like Maggie Rogers, Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, and Gracie Abrams. Her creative, hard-hitting lyricism tells of a relationship that flew too close to the sun: “We were burning so bright ’til we burned ourselves out,” she sings. She “turns the mundane into the miraculous” by serving this fried food as a metaphor for remembering versus moving on. “Adding perspective to truth and romance to reality. The paradox of existing in a liminal space.”
“Fish Tacos” is Space Nat’s 11th studio recording, written and performed at her home in Los Angeles, and produced and mixed by Ben Kling in Nashville, TN. She has played staple LA venues like The Mint and The Hotel Cafe, and this isn’t the last time you will hear about her.
