Native Sun are back with a new single: “Sister.” It was produced by NYC legend Walter Schreifels of Gorilla Biscuits & Quicksand (and Rival Schools and Youth of Today and like a million other insanely influential bands). It was engineered and mixed by Jeremey Snyder, who has worked alongside IDLES & Fontaines DC in the past. If you can find a sweet spot between all of those reference points, it sounds a little something like this. The song operates as a warts-and-all love letter to the band’s adoptive home of NYC, calling on Schreifels history to build a sonic bridge through decades of downtown skuzz.
“Dedicated to the experiences, real moments, and eternal characters of after-hours New York City – directionless and constantly searching for some sort of unknown,” the band writes about the song. “Grabbing the senses of a time and a place with the realities of streetwise independence that forever shape the individual. The urban landscape changes and decays, the emotions remain the same.”
