Hailing from Vienna (Austria), New Native was formed in 2013 by guitarist Michael Hanser, bassist Simon Ecker and drummer Alex Straub. A year later they were joined by guitarist Christian Schwarz. After a number of shows across Europe supporting acts like The Story So Far, Seahaven or Superheaven, New Native released their debut EP “Twisting” via Goddamn Records, Tief in Marcellos Schuld Records and Shivery Productions in May 2014. The release was followed by a full EU & UK tour supporting Pianos Become The Teeth and Silver Snakes in January 2015. Over one and a half years in the making, their most recent effort “Soul Cult” features a fuller rock sound with rich instrumentation, whilst still incorporating their signature infectious melodies.
