Indie Rock
Native Other is a genre defying four-piece outfit based in Toronto, Ontario. With a first listen, they come off as an indie alternative band, but with a closer detail on the intricacies of their music, several other genres become unavoidable. The unique and smooth rhythms bring jazz into play. As reverb drips through guitar, surf elements are more noticeable. Harmonization of autobiographical lyrics sung in falsetto draw comparisons to the Toronto-birthed contemporary R&B sounds. The overall spaciness leaves a psychedelic tone to their music. After gaining international attention off of their debut EP, featuring artwork from Toronto artist, Fucci, the band’s collaborative approach and refreshing content is bound to bring them a bright future.
