At a party held at the Penthouse Tim Mitchell Shakira in Miami last year, Natania Lalwani and her writing partner, Asha Madhukar wrote a song entitled Sober. Improvised creation was inspired by a text message from a friend who has just been broken.
“The text says something along the lines of” do not say it’s over until we’re sobriques “and I fell in love with this concept,” Lalwani said.
Lalwani and Madhukar performed the song live for Mitchell’s guests. “We played the song about 60 times in the loop while drinking wine on a Miami roof, so the top of the song we had written was an incredible night of music,” said Lalwani.
Relatively unknown in the pop scene in India and Bollywood music, Lalwani carves an identity in the American music industry for five years. She began recording her debut album, Hope and Anxiety, in 2012 when she was still at the Berklee Music School in Boston, but it is her first hit, Cherry Love (2012), which was aired on VH1 channel Lalwani music realized that it could do great.
Since then, Lalwani songs have begun to emerge in unexpected places: in recent years, their slopes have been made in the United States of X Factor, Open night with Seth Myers, Born This Way, teenage mom and Big Brother. The song, when it was young sung by Black Neo and written by Lalwani, reached its maximum point in the number three in the lists of Spotify of the United States and Global Viral.
Lalwani also writes music specifically for documentaries, including the series I Am Cait, which recounts the life of Caitlyn Jenner after her transitional class. Recently, the young man of 24 years wrote the music for the official trailer heart of Man, a document of fiction inspired by the faith.
The Lalwani style adheres to the pop-ear success formula of artists such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus: their songs are mainly about heart matters, they have rhythms, catchy melodies and saccharine words. Lalwani does not preclude experiment incorporating indie pop influences and electronic dance music into his music, and even scored a darker sound of his last prisoner.
It is already a return to a lighter one, with influences of EDM. “Cherry love was very independent songwriter and innocent, the last song, prisoner, was dark and heavy trap, but it is already warm and luminous. I always change and grew as a human being and still want to be reflected in my art as My greatest hope is to be as real and authentic as possible.
Music plays an important role in Lalwani’s life from an early age. “My mother listened to many English artists like Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, so she grew up listening to many of these artists,” Lalwani said. “The music was always around the house and I always have my helmet, which was a nuisance for the rest of my family.”
She received her first formal training in music under the stoppages of the Coral Ensemble in Mumbai, one of India’s most prestigious choirs and later studied music at the Berklee before moving to the Musician Institute in Los Angeles.
According to Lalwani, his music is inspired by the “details of any emotion.” “The subtleties of sadness or happiness, it’s beautiful to me. I always think it’s so cool that you can write an entire song three minutes based on a fleeting feeling or a moment and that lasts forever,” he said.
