UK talent NATIVE PEOPLE show off their evolved sound in new single Figure It Out, released late last month.
Produced by Huw Stephens-approved collective The Citrus Clouds and Oz Craggs, the new track retains the band’s core essence whilst showcasing their versatility as they explore a new direction for their sound. The focus leans towards the marriage of 90s R&B, downtempo funk and sleek contemporary pop, reminiscent of Honne and Shura.
2016 has been a big year for the Kent-based quartet, with their summer single Call Me breaking into the top 10 on Spotify’s UK Viral Chart and being labeled “the sound of summer” by BBC Introducing’s Abbie McCarthey. In the past few months alone they have toured in Germany and Holland, played a plethora of festivals and headlined Club NME at the prestigious KOKO. This November the young band will embark on their first headline tour, stopping off at Bristol, Manchester, Brighton, Birmingham, Newcastle and London.
NATIVE PEOPLE gained recognition for their pressing indie rhythms, beautiful guitar riffs and thoughtful vocals, now with the release of Figure It Out and their inaugural UK headline tour in November, these upcomers will be bringing their 80’s inspired indie electronica and mature pop to the next level.
