Charlotte, NC based singer and songwriter Natalie Carr has dropped the sweet, endearing, effervescent pop single ‘Scraped Knees’. With a tone as succulent and delectable as honey, she gently skates across this new offering with an unmatched ease and grace.
Oozing with pop perfection, the synths chosen compliment the light hearted nature of the lyricism, making for a laid back yet memorable alt-pop, R&B infused vibe.
Explaining her thoughts on ‘Scraped Knees’, Natalie Carr states, “Honestly, Scraped Knees was one of those songs I wrote that just kind of came out of me. I wasn’t looking to write about any particular thing or any given concept, and I remember free-styling parts of it (as I’ve done with several other songs). As the lyrics came together though, and I began to structure it, I knew it was about the futility of trying to please other people. In the first verse, I talk about getting sober and making tons of changes for a relationship that inevitably failed. It’s almost as if you become the person you think you need to be in a bad relationship just so that you can stay together, but as we are well aware, that doesn’t work. I wrote the hook, ‘scraped knees, jagged teeth, bloodshot baby’ about being emotionally broken and exhausted due to the stresses of preserving a bad relationship and being someone you’re not. ‘Don’t you worry about me… you never worried about me’ is in reference to (said person) coming back into your life at an opportune moment.”
