The Naturals are a band that I have been watching develop over the past 7 years or so, from their days as youthful Million Dead want to be’s through to the seering shoagaze melodic swoonings with epic feels. The evolution of this bunch of old school friends has been nothing an on going growing precess over the past ten years.
2HGS is taken from the bands highly anticipated debut album, which is due out in May. I dont think that a band has taken quite so long to releasing their debut album. Nore has a band taken on quite so many sonic changes over the years since their formation.
2HGS is full of hymnal sounding drones and heavily distorted chiming vocals and has dissonant feel. The sound takes on elements of the new generation of kraut, like Factory Floor and Beak and mixing them together with the likes of the Pop Groups post punk rhythmic bass lines. Ultimately it feels like they have given a fresh take on what people view as the Bristol Sound.
I cant wait for the album to come out.
