Biography

There are more than one artist with this name:

In just a handful of years, Northwestern Indiana’s Native have quietly built themselves a large word-of-mouth following in the underground as an incendiary live act. The iconoclast group’s impeccable musicianship, ominous chords, apocalyptic vocals and innovative rhythms hit with an intensity that can only be described as akin to a white-knuckle thrill ride. There’s as much suffocating darkness as there is thoughtful focus to Native’s intricate song structures and pensive lyrics. There’s a dark foreboding in the guitar lines simultaneously pushing and pulling, the whole band embracing and tearing apart musical convention with the unpredictability of a protest gone awry.

The four piece have self-released two demos and an EP in April 2008 titled “We Delete; Erase.” In their first year of existence they played over 150 shows and toured four times (three times through the Midwest and once through the east coast). In October of 2008, Native signed with Sargent House and began work on their first full length album titled “Wrestling Moves.” It received a digital release in November and of 2009 and a wider release in January 2010. The band toured relentlessly for the next several years. They released their sophomore album Orthodox on August 22, 2013.

    I could never get into Wrestling Moves, but Orthodox is one of my favorite albums of the past few years. Maybe I'll go back an revisit WM after jamming Orthodox so much... hope I can see them in TX in the coming year.

    Seeing them play Orthodox live really changed my perception of it. I had liked it before, but live it was like being just absolutely crushed by waves of sound, it was beautiful. Wrestling moves is still my favorite by far but Orthodox is really great too.

    @suzyOcean I almost [3]'d your comment and then i realize i was the one who said it haha. i'm actually kind of surprised by the positive reception the album is getting. I think musically it's really sick but I feel like the whole ethos [i don't know how to use that word] of the band is different on the album. it's still good but it doesn't quite feel like Native when i listen to it

    Orthodox turned out really good, but I like Wrestling Moves more too.

    Didn't think much of this band at first, but now I can't get enough after I saw them live.

    Orthodox is definitely better than Wrestling Moves. [4] Just want to clarify, not saying Wrestling Moves was bad at all, it was great, Orthodox is just that much more amazing.
