The Native Set To Release ‘BLINDSIDE’On This Feeling Records

The Native are currently embarking upon a major tour as guests to Bastille, which includes a huge London show at London’s O2 next week. It's been a surreal time for the band, who recently announced that they’ve signed a new deal with rock ‘n’ roll tastemakers This Feeling, which commences with their brand new single ‘Blindside’. The track will be the first song to preview their new EP, which will follow in the summer.

The Native’s roots date back to secondary school in Plymouth. Charlie Noordewier and guitarist Ben Andrew started the project by releasing an ethereal indie-folk EP, and soon boosted the band with the addition of Tom Booth (bass) and Harry Youngs (keys). They only had one rehearsal together, before they were thrust into a local 8000 capacity show supporting Bastille as part of MTV’s Ocean City Sounds. That was followed with a headline gig at Plymouth Pavilions a mere week after they had finished their A-levels.

That was the moment they decided to take the band as far as they could. Meanwhile, the feral live energy of their live shows started to inspire a new exhilaration and propulsion to their music too. Inspired by the genre-defying single-mindedness of The 1975, the raucous anthems of Catfish and The Bottlemen, plus Coldplay’s anthemic power, The Native provoked interest and admiration with every release. Their rise continued through 2021’s self-released ‘In My Mind’ EP as well as recent singles from ‘Call Me Out’ to ‘Signals’. Their line-up also evolved with the addition of their new drummer Fergus Segrove.
