New Audio: Native Sons, Shoegaze-Leaning, New Single “Pictures”

With members based in London UK and Brighton UK, the British indie rock trio Native Sons first caught my attention with the release of their first single “Humanise,” which was a breezy bit of Brit pop reminiscent of The Invisible Band-era Travis and even The Smiths but with unconventional song structures. The trio’s latest single, “Pictures” is an atmospheric song comprised of swirling electronics, twinkling synth chords, four-on-the-floor drumming, gently undulating feedback and ethereal vocals to create a dreamy bit of shoegaze that sounds inspired by Radiohead, as much as it does by RIDE, The Stone Roses and others.
