Native Station Bones ‘N’ All

In 2015 I introduced you all to the band Native Station and their debut EP ‘Vera Vera’ (see post Introducing Native Station). I mentioned that this EP was rough around the edges but it showed a lot of promise. Well, the guys have returned with their new EP ‘Bones ‘N All’ and I was eager to hear what they have created.

Greg Benton (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Brett Cunningham (bass), Nick Solga (drums) and Thomas Troutt (back-up vocals/lead guitar) have delivered a great collection of songs which show that their music has grown a lot since their debut release. The 4 songs that are on offer feel more confident than their last, which I think has been helped by the fact that they’ve been busy touring/playing shows to positive reviews. Together they offer a cool indie rock sound that is a group effort as everyone brings so much with no one trying to steal the spotlight and the highlight song ‘Idioms Are for Idiots (Fast & Furious)’ is a great example of this.

For me, it is the lyrical side to their music that has improved the most and my favourite track ‘10,000’ not only shows this but also how much stronger Greg’s voice and range has become. This song has a much softer side to the others and maybe it is another reason this one stands out for me. Again I have to use the words confident as their lyrical side as well as their music has this feel about it. The definitely helps to give this EP a much more solid feel that will win them a lot of new fans.

‘Bones ‘N All’ is a solid release and shows how much stronger Native Station have become. This may only be a few songs to offer us listeners but it has so much to give thanks to how they have developed their songwriting as a whole. Head over to their Bandcamp page (click HERE) to listen to this EP in full and if you like what you hear then you can also make a purchase while you are there.

I am looking forward to seeing how the music of Native Station grows as you can already see the improvements they have made with the new release. It is easy to see that their next release will be even stronger.
