Native Sun release new single, “Too Late”

Native Sun just burnt Austin, TX to the ground (SXSW photos over @ Rolling Stone), and have spent the past month or so riding the roads alongside beloved Captured Tracks post-punks Thus Love.

After returning to New York last week, the band celebrates with a new single, “Too Late,” a soundtrack for the city they call home.

“’It’s too late and I don’t care!’ A rallying cry for the downtrodden who choose to persevere in spite of an uncertain future,” says Native Sun frontman Danny Gomez of the new song. “Dedicated to the streets of the city, its narrators and their untold stories. Optimism is resistance.”

The punchy production, courtesy of living legend Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Rival Schools), creates a unique mesh of soaring guitars and tight percussion – an even more refined highwire act than the band’s previous EP, which Schreifels also helmed.

“Since working with Native Sun on their debut EP “Off With Their Heads” this is the fiery rock and roll anthem I was hoping for and needed,” says Schreifels. “With all the energy, swagger and panache ”Too Late” charges ahead with bigger ambition, catchier choruses and musical twists that’ll grab you by the collar and toss you in the pit like a damn doll.”

The single arrives with a Tim Nagle-directed music video, fittingly shot across iconic NYC backdrops, subway stops and beyond. The band has a few upcoming shows amidst those same backdrops, and a handful of additional North Eastern gigs, all listed below.
