Breezing over dynamically sweet guitar licks, Treading Water, the latest single from Brighton based quartet Nature TV, is deliciously soothing, incorporating elements of surf rock with that familiar, echoed indie sound. The otherwise sunlit tune details the troubling emotions of what it means to tread the troubled waters of life, along with all of its conflicting sentiments.
The four piece band consisting of members Guy, Josh, Zal, and Jimmy carries the burgeoning fresh hedonism that distinctly marks the appeal of indie bands such as Peach Pit, Real Estate, and Beach Fossils. After signing to Heist or Hit in September of 2019, Nature TV found themselves quickly garnering the attention of indie pop audiences, along with being handpicked to open for Swimming Tapes, PINS, and VANT, as well as touring across the UK with Trudy & The Romance.
Treading Water is a prime display of Nature TV’s infectiously easy-going energy, complete with catchy, subtle guitar riffs, and the melodic melted tone of Guy’s vocals. The track exuberantly captures the essence of the band’s style– rhythmically pleasant melodies set against poetically introspective lyricism.
To have already crafted such an eccentrically prominent presence in their discography illustrates the promising energy Nature TV aims to bring to audiences worldwide. Concurring with the band’s upcoming release, listeners can catch Nature TV live for their first UK headline tour in October.
