Hailing from The New Forest, indie quartet Natives are back with new single ‘Passion’.
‘Passion’ was the first song that the band wrote for their upcoming album and is the third single the band have released since their debut album ‘Indoor War’.
‘Chasing Lions’, ‘Stop The Rain’ and now ‘Passion’ bring out the bands tribal pop sounds to perfection, absorbing West African culture into their music.
Guitarist Jack Fairbrother explains for Clash: “‘Passion’ was the first song we wrote for this album, although it lived in an almost-finished state for over two years! The main synth line and vocal melodies have remained the same, but in the later recording sessions we pushed the track towards a more ‘live band’ feel by dialling back some of the electronics and adding more live percussion tracks and the guitalele.”
“The song tells a specific part of our overall album narrative, but the general theme is about the nervous feeling you get when faced with sharing things close to your heart. It’s about wanting to know that someone will care about something as much as you do.”
