As the days get shorter and the air gets colder, the only answer to keeping warm is tapping into the music that keeps summer alive. That’s is exactly where N-A-I-V-E-S come in, an eclectic London based electro pop group who will reignite the feeling of a hot summer’s day right into your ear drums.
If you look at any of N-A-I-V-E-S artwork, you’ll find plenty of tropical attire and vibrant colours, which is also a strong reflection on their sound that their Facebook describes as “Rain Forest” (although we’re not sure how often you find synthesizers in the tropical rainforest).
There’s nothing dull about this band. They’re proof that the indie-electro dance era is far from over, following in the footsteps of Metronomy and Friendly Fires (having actually supported the latter) with energetic beats and powerful synths, N-A-I-V-E-S music is uplifting and flamboyant, from the funky baseline in ‘Fashion Pineapple’ to the catchy chorus of ‘Crystal Clear’.It’s hard to stay still when listening to these guys and we predict that things are only going to get bigger and better for them.
Come and join the dance party when N-A-I-V-E-S headline Club Closeup on Friday 27th October. Tickets are £6 on DICE here
