It is a common thing to not have our priorities straight at times. We often use unhealthy coping mechanisms to avoid our responsibilities. Natalie Claro perfectly relays that sentiment in her pop-rock single “When Alcohol Tastes Like Juice.” The sultry single highlights powerful, soulful vocals soaring atop heavy guitars and shiny drums. Who doesn’t love a good cocktail, especially the really sugary ones that taste like candy? Those are the kind though that can really sneak up on you. Her release is just as sweet as a Sex on the Beach or a Piña colada, making it the ultimate intoxicating listen.
The Nashville based artist is a fierce multi-talented force writing and producing all her music. Inspired by everyone from Aretha Franklin to Hozier, her unique sound blends a myriad of genres. You can hear that eclectic blend of sounds in this bold new offering. Claro concocted the song throughout the 2020 Covid pandemic. She reveals of the tune, “I want to use this song to remind young people not to lose themselves in the process of making themselves. Finding joy is being grateful for the journey.” Get sucked into the syrupy single now.
