These guys had been silent for a while, but this summer, Natives have released a new music video for their song Stop The Rain. Filmed in Morocco, this new video is a way for them to share a message of positivity and mixing with other cultures as opposite to the whole negativity that’s been floating in the world recently:
“Our love for percussion led us to Morocco, a muslim country where the Arabic East meets sub-Saharan Africa. We instantly fell in love with the rhythm of the place, from the main squares to the mountains, everything had a beat. We met Berbers in Agadir, where drumming circles are a part of everyday social life and were captivated by the way rhythm was used to bring people together and tell stories. This idea, coupled with the welcoming warmth of the culture formed the heart and soul of Stop The Rain.”
If you’ve been wondering what’s new in the Natives‘ camp, you might want to know that the band will be embarking on a UK run, supporting the New Yorkers in MOTHXR next September.
3. Leatherneck drop new EP ‘Lighting Up The Tilt Sign’
In their own words : “Lighting Up The Tilt Sign’ is when we were finding our feet and direction, so within these changes came the uncertainty of being in an unfamiliar place. The songs represent these themes for us pretty well”. It’s kind of grungy and kind of melancholic at the same time, but you should listen to it and make your own mind!
