Natasha was born in Switzerland to a Dutch father and Filipina mother, and began tinkering on pianos as soon as she was big enough to sit on the stool by herself. She began lessons when her family settled in The Netherlands at age 8, and by age 11 was composing instrumental pieces "for films". She was introduced to guitar at age 14 when she was taught "Wild Thing" by nuns in an Italian convent. She spent high school teaching herself guitar, coercing friends into forming rock bands, and writing poems almost daily, which she turned into lyrics. At age 18, Natasha moved to London. While studying Law at the London School of Economics she recorded a solo piano EP, coerced more friends into forming more bands, composed for independent games and films (one of which won the 2008 Student Academy Award), and shadowed her inspiration Michael Nyman.

As soon as she graduated, Natasha made a beeline for the walls of band advertisements in Denmark Street. It was through there that she met her future duo partner, with whom she spent 3 years writing and performing anti-folk music as a vocalist, guitarist, bassist and ukuleleist. Over the years, Natasha picked up more and more instruments, influences and live experience, and began to form a strong identity as a solo artist. She finished her solo demo in 2013.
