Brighton’s resident dream-pop experts Nature TV share EP lead single ‘Hometown’
Out now via Heist or Hit (Her’s, Pizzagirl, Honey Moon)
Brighton’s resident dream-pop experts Nature TV share melancholic EP lead single ‘Hometown’, which was released August 12th via cult indie label Heist or Hit (Her’s, Pizzagirl, Honey Moon).
Comprising of 50% music college grads and 50% camping shop employees, the quartet may have stopped short of pioneering the ‘hikewave’ genre, but firmly turn their attention towards the wilderness in forthcoming EP ‘Lady Luck’; composing evergreen songs exposed to the elements.
Hometown shimmers with it’s opening expansive chords and glistening chorus enriching the guitar notes. This band are masters at creating deep lustrous textures which vividly stand out. Mixed with the impeccable lyrics and captivating brooding vocals which exude harmony and emotive appeal. Nature TV can lift their audience and impressively take their conscious to another level throughout their arrangements.
With contemplative nostalgia reigning supreme in their newest effort, the indie risers are primed to capitalise on acclaimed 2019 EP ‘Emotion Sickness’, having become a firm favourite amongst key industry gatekeepers (DIY, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Gigwise), earned support across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Huw Stephens) and opened for the likes of Swimming Tapes and Trudy and the Romance.
Detailing their upcoming release, frontman Guy Bangham explained “‘Hometown’ is about being aware of problems or changes in your own life and wanting to fix those issues but cause you’re stuck in your way, things just go the same as always. It’s also thinking (or hoping) that other people have changed, but deep down knowing they never really will so you’re just reliving the past over and over and never moving forward”.
