Native Sons Debut Fiery Single
Thomas Fine and Justin Altamura of Native Sons released their debut single, “Lay Your Lover Down.” The hard-hitting, synth-laden track premiered exclusively on idobi. In order to find the energetic and expansive sound they were looking for, Thomas and Justin turned to producer Chris Garcia (Lana Del Rey, Adele). The end result is three minutes and fifty-five seconds of depth and power. Definitely for fans of Nine Inch Nails and Future Islands.
In 2012, at a small table outside of their rented apartment in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, Thomas and Justin discussed the future of their music careers. Almost to the date, one year later, they would find themselves playing at the 2013 Bottle Rock Music & Arts Festival with headliners the Black Keys and Kings of Leon, in their rock/blues band The Iron Heart. In Paris, they discussed what kind of music they could make, and what kind of music they wanted to make. The music of Native Sons is the latter.
The Native Sons project took a backseat for the time being but was ever present in the hundreds of songs they wrote together of the next 4 years. It wasn’t until June of 2016 Thomas Fine and Justin Altamura decided to re-think their music trajectory. The duo called on friends and industry contacts to put together a roster of producers.
Native Sons – Super American, their debut release, is a mix of pop, dance, electronic and rock. The 7 song EP take the listener through a journey of their past relationships, adventures and past musical history together in an intimate and emotional way.
Super American will available online on all major streaming and download services August 4th.
