Natasha and Shannon are two female singers formerly known as Acoustic Carpets. They are cousins who first went to the studio with a song written by Shannon’s mom. Since then the girls have completed about 10 songs. Some which they wrote themselves and others by Shannon’s mom as well as a friend named Danny. Natasha and Shannon have also started live gigging.
Natasha and Shannon have found an interesting mix of pop, rock and urban dance that doesn’t seem to rely too much on one or the other. They deliver some terrific harmonies between both girls’ voices, mixed with a lot of crunchy guitar hooks. “No Wrong” is an awesome standout ballad that makes good use of the two voices alternating lines in the verses and blending harmonies into the catchy chorus. “Little Old Me” does exceptionally well with harmony and with a chorus that practically begs you to sing along. It also plays a little in the upper registers. “Kiss Me” is more rock-paced than the others once it hits the chorus, and stays strong in the verses with the great blend between the voices.
I am highly impressed with this delicious slice of pop-rock perfection. The melodies are lush, the vocals are uplifting and powerful without being overbearing. And the girls also know how to really draw as much emotion out of those slow quieter songs as is possible. Listen to “Bruises” and “Last Line”, if your heart doesn’t melt, get new one…because yours is already broken!
It’s not very often that an unknown artist arrives and makes people stand back and say hang on who are these people? This is so different? Well your queries are all answered when it’s regarding the two girls from Wilmslow and Wrexham.
When all the attitude and energy of the tracks that get you moving, subside, you can take a moment to relax and hear the more soulful side of Natasha and Shannon who sing from the heart with the beautiful track ‘All Tied Up’.
Whether you love the slower tracks, the songs that really get you going or the ones with the plain in your face attitude, Natasha and Shannon deliver music that everyone can seem to take something away from. Pop with such a raw edge and infused with an attitude, will almost definitely pave the way for the girls to make their mark in the world of music.
Natasha and Shannon have so much talent and tons of potential to be a huge success, providing they get the right production and marketing team behind them. From the first time I heard the simple acoustic number, “Why”, I could tell that there was something special about them. In my opinion, the cousins manage to combine the very best aspects of pop-rock: upbeat lyrics, intoxicating choruses, and an excellent combination of vocals and instrumentation. Not to mention the obvious, deadly female physical attraction which, for me, is largely obscured by their singing talents!
