Don't Fear The Natives

Donegal’s Don’t Fear The Natives release Catch A Wave

From Buncrana, Co. Donegal, Don’t Fear The Natives are a six-piece alt-rock band formed around the nucleus of singer Claire McDaid and guitarist/songwriter Denis Kelly. Their Stupid Heart EP takes influence from the likes of Spiritualized, Blondie and PJ Harvey and ranges sonically from new wave blistering guitar alt rock to a more delicate, emotive side.

The second single off the EP is a fresh, punchy stomper called Catch A Wave

We’re really excited for the new songs, they’re an extension of what came before with the EP. We love to rock it out, but there’s an edgier, occasionally delicate side that we love exploring, the vulnerabilities of relationships, the heartaches, and sometimes those small victories in between
