The Love I Have -Dead Natives

A few months back I reviewed the debut EP from London band DEAD NATIVES. They have since been recording more material, and on June 17th they’re back with a brand new single, I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hear it.

Ever since my first listen to the band a few months back, I have absolutely loved everything Dead Natives had to offer, and The Love I Have in no way hindered this.

“Gritty, moody but full of hope” are the words the band themselves used to describe their forthcoming single, but what’s my thoughts?

The track is both lyrically, and musically strong. Made up of psychedelic melodies, heavy percussion, and a lively rhythm, it gives off a moody, chill vibe. Lyrics such as “I’m walking down the same empty streets, left with nothing but a kiss on the cheek” make it clear this is very much about love…if the name wasn’t suggestive enough!

Liam’s vocals put me in mind of Alex Turner at first, however upon my third or fourth listen, a more distinctive tone began to emerge.

If you’re a fan of Oasis’ earlier stuff, or dare I say, The Last Shadow Puppets… this is definitely one you’ll love. An ideal soundtrack for a chilled Friday night.

The Love I Have will be released on Friday 17th June 2016, and will be available on Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp.

Alongside this release, Dead Natives have a number of gigs lined up:

JUNE:

28th – The Monarch, Camden

JULY:

06th – Undersolo,Camden

17th – Alleycat, Denmark Street

AUG:

12th – Hope and Anchor, Islington

They’re also planning to release a second EP this September, which is certainly something to look forward to!
