Native Wildlife creates music that is intricately layered using elements of post-rock and progressive hardcore while still being down to earth and forceful. Since the departure of original vocalist Steve Massaroni, the band has remained a 4-piece, and has gone in a more experimental direction, taking the already ambient and heavy aspects to the next level. Since 2011, the band has run the gamut from uplifting emotional hardcore tracks ("Devil's Daughter") to darker, more metallic tracks ("Science Fiction") while maintaining a signature backbone of meticulous songwriting. Favoring restless, linear song structures, with unusual melodic and rhythmic content, Native Wildlife has fought against common genre tropes in favor of something harder to pin down. With a sound that has been honed and expanded over the course of two EPs, two splits, and a full-length, Native Wildlife is just getting started.
