Native People Short Info

Kent-coastal neophytes Native People may be relatively new arrivals to the music scene but have wasted no time in garnering support for their seaside-influenced, sentimental take on dreamscape indie-dance. This summer saw the release of the young quintet’s debut single, ‘Calm Forever’ which scorched its way to championing titles of ‘Record of the Week’ [BBC Introducing], and ‘Discovery of the Week’ [Amazing Radio], as well as warranting praise from long-standing indie moguls Propaganda, who supported the track in saying, “It takes a real skill for a band to keep their songs simple, yet manage to capture an audience and keep them hooked”.

Native People are now set to independently release their follow up single ‘ONE', on 8th December. The track is beautifully melodic, with shimmering guitar licks that caress Reuben’s distinctively warm floaty vocals atop deep funky bass-lines, all whilst simultaneously embracing a backdrop of balmy synths and episodes of rolling percussion. Despite their youth, Reuben (21), Luke (20), Connor (18) & Hudd (18) masterfully craft songs well beyond their years, citing a wealth of influences and likeness attributed to acts such as Foals, Two Door Cinema Club and Friendly Fires. This, coupled with a unanimous admiration of 80s synths and the early progenitors of power-pop, has seen the band obtain a cumbersome fan base and more recently, successfully perform a show for a sold-out Club NME at London’s prestigious venue, Koko.
