New Native, our best (and only) pals from Austria, have just started a new Facebook series in which they go super duper, mega, well...they go in depth into what each of their songs are about and the process it took to create them. This week's is about their song "Nothing More", which is one of my personal favorites off of their SOUL CULT 12" EP, available now in the Anchor Eighty Four webstore HERE.
Behind the Song #1 – "Nothing More"
The basic idea for "Nothing More" dates back to the Twisting recording sessions. A week or two after we had tracked the record, I brought the verse and chorus to practice and we worked out most of the song right away. Thinking back, it kind of bummed us out that we couldn't include the song on the first record just because it was written so close to the sessions.
We're really happy how the song eventually turned out. We initially demo'd two versions of the song.... (READ MORE HERE)
Originally self-released by the band on CD format in 2010, Heart to Heart created a collection of raw and emotionally aggressive music in the form of what is now their Impressions EP. It was this EP that caught our attention, and soon lead us to release Heart to Heart's 'Deathproof' 7inch and their infamous Self Titled full-length LP on Anchor Eighty Four Records. We are proud to once again join forces with Heart to Heart to re-release 'Impressions' on limited cassette!

Jeffrey Wright, of Unconditional Arms, shares his thoughts on Minnow's "Vacation Forever" - "Minnow is a group of people who are committed to the artistry of creation. Aside from the fact that we discuss literally everything on a daily basis in our infamous group text, getting to know the members of the band on a personal note has brought all of us so much joy. They're truly just on the same wavelength as us in many aspects of music, life and love. 'Vacation Forever' is a slight departure from their earlier released music, but the discordant instrumentation blooms into a true "minnow-feel" when Onate adds his Broken Social Scene flair and the 2nd guitar slides it's way into the composition. As O'Hara belts some of his most intelligible and intriguing prose yet, I'm left to feel really only one thing - a warm sense of happiness and joy, like I've been on Vacation Forever. It's some of their best work and I'm sure it's just a taste of what they have planned for the future.
We feel privileged to share this a moment with Minnow and hope to stay in each other's lives for a great while - musically and personally. Very thankful to A84 for making it happen in such a unique way."
