If you read this blog regularly, you know that over the past 18 months or so i’ve been receiving an increasing number of emails from PR firms, labels, artists and band management from all over the world, which makes it obvious to me that covering music regardless of genre or country of origin was the right thing to do. In any case, I recently received an email from the London UK/Brighton UK-based trio of Native Sons. Their first single “Humanise” is comprised of shimmering guitar chords, four-on-the-floor drums and gorgeous harmonies that should sound absolutely familiar to those who love breezy yet earnest Brit pop; in fact, to me at least, it bears a dim resemblance to The Invisible Band-era Travis and even the Smiths but with more unconventional song structures.
