UK indie outfit The Native have been releasing a string of powerful singles over the last few years, but now, the band returns with the slow-burning single "All Out," exhibiting their trademark indie guitars and alt-rock tones, seeking comfort in the realisation that your own power lies within your uniqueness.
Penned about the anxieties and insecurities about the internal need to fit in, the track's lyricism dwells on navigating through toxicity to try to feel 'normal.' Detailing the expectations of fitting into a mould, "All Out" is a powerful coming of age ballad wrapped in indie sensibilities and rising drum patterns. Built with the foundations of indie that The Native do so well and produced by John Cornfield, this single slows things down slightly by removing the thunderous guitar riffs and instead injects soothing, dark melancholic lines of electric goodness into your ears.
Whilst The Native still appear to be in their infancy, their sonic power lies within their gritty riffs and relatable lyricism. A band that only continue to grow stronger with each release, there's something special around the corner for these guys.
