Nature TV is “Treading Water” in New Single

Brighton-based indie pop rock quartet Nature TV has released their newest single, “Treading Water,” a sentimental summer-y upbeat addition to their discography. 

The band is comprised of Guy (guitar & vocals), Josh (bass), Zal (drums) and Jimmy (lead guitar & backing vocals). Straddling the line between indie-pop and psych-rock, their familiar yet unique sound is often compared to Peach Pit, Real Estate and Beach Fossils, and personally reminded me of bands like The Strokes and The Growlers. 

This track is extremely inviting with carefree vocals; there is something nostalgic about this song and its dreamy looping guitar riffs and the steady drums that frame it. 

It expresses raw reflective emotions, with lyrics like, “I want you to stay there so I can just be here all alone, treading the water as I go”. “Treading Water” expresses the gratitude of solitude: “Fantasize about nothing with no one around me anymore”.

Nature TV signed to Heist or Hit in September 2019 and quickly released three singles and an EP, Emotion Sickness. Following up on the success of their EP, 2020 saw the foursome release three more singles from their Lady Luck EP, all of which have received global blog support. Their tracks also landed Spotify playlisting on Garden Indie, Lo-Fi Indie and Alt Rocked, along with BBC Radio airplay. 

To coincide with their next release, the guys are going out on their first UK headline tour in October.
