NATTERERS: Toxic Care: 7”EP

Aug 02, 2017

Out of all the bands that have sprung up in the past year or so, Natterers is the one that excites me the most. Its demo cassette and flexi highlighted a band hugely influenced by the SoCal sound of the ‘80s, plus, at times, they really reminded me of one of my favorite bands, Night Birds. This six-track EP continues in exactly the same vein, and in doing so ticks all the right boxes for me. It has great cover art courtesy of Hal Mundane, a wicked guitar sound, and Emma’s vocals are the icing on the cake, especially on “Numb,” as a torrent of words spew from her mouth, barely allowing her to take a breath. I saw Natterers live recently and it was such a damn fine set that I’ve planned a road trip to see them in a couple of months. A band definitely worth checking out. –Rich Cocksedge (Boss Tuneage, [email protected], / Serial Bowl,
