Hotel Motel - HOMO031LP
Melbourne songwriter Nat Vazer writes intimate guitar pop that unfolds like short fiction layered with rich melodies, emotional depth and whimsical storytelling with a bite of feminist defiance.
At the age of 5, Vazer started learning classical piano but became fascinated with an eclectic variety of artists having grown up in a household with her family's 60s and 80s record collection. A self-taught guitarist, she stole her father's guitar during highschool and started to learn Nirvana, The Strokes and Death Cab For Cutie based off internet guitar tabs. She soon began writing songs in highschool bands and recording on her computer using built-in microphones and free software. From there, her DIY ethic and love for recording in unorthodox places was born.
The last few years have been some of the most prolific for Vazer, who quit her 9-5 career as a lawyer to focus on writing. The songs have come out of late night walks, exploring foreign cities, long drives to unknown destinations and a collection of emotions, experiences and significant stories from over time.
In 2018, Vazer's debut single 'Keep Away From Parks!' was acclaimed as one of the 'Triple J presenter favourites' of the year, and subsequent singles 'You're Winning Me Over' and 'Struggletown' have earned her fans in Triple J's Richard Kingsmill, ToneDeaf and a feature spotlight by The Australian Independent Record Labels Association. Produced by Robert Muinos (Julia Jacklin, Saskwatch) and co-engineered by Callum Barter (Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile), Vazer's debut EP 'We Used To Have Real Conversations' (2018) has received national radioplay across Triple J, Double J and other stations, as well as international airplay in North America.
Her debut LP Is This Offensive And Loud? will be released on 29 May, including on vinyl. The album will feature new single 'For A Moment', along with the previously released 'Like Demi' and 'Grateful'. A March 2020 tour of Australia's east coast, celebrating the single "Grateful", fell victim to the COVID-19 restrictions and had to be canned, but Nat and her band will be playing live around the country as soon as the situation improves.
