: Natas Loves You
Natas Loves you's ambitious project was formed in 2008 in Luxembourg. Fascinated by elements, nature, and waves, their songs were only canvases to express their passion for the complicated architecture that is earth.
In the summer of 2009 they released their first EP called " from Natas with love ". Besides having singles that peaked at number one and ten on the national charts ( finished line, and Love don't bring me down ), their first Ep also featured more Lo-fi songs like " Desperation of the summer solstice " or "morning ".
With lines like " I'm not sure I want the light / Take me out this dark hour " " Breaking of the day wish the dark away / But you are powerless " Natas Loves you use allegories to describe the constant helplessness in which their generation is stuck.
For the promotion of their first Ep, Natas loves you played the Rock A Field festival in Luxembourg , alongside bands like Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, or the Ting Tings.
The band moved to Paris , in the fall of 2009. They had to start everything from scratch and soon discovered that open mics were a really cool way to meet people, and to find shows. They found a scene that really appealed to them in the sunday Pop in events.
Having made contacts quickly, they played their first few Parisian shows in 2010 ( L' International, Pop in, OPA, Bus Palladium ). And in the summer, Started recording their second EP.
The recording sessions for " Paintings " took place in Ferber, and studio de la Seine, both considered as temples of the french music scene.
For their release party Natas Loves You sold out one of the biggest parisian indie venues ( La Maroquinerie ) in March 2011.
For this Ep, Natas Loves you took a poppier turn with songs like " Zeppelins ", " Scarlett Brown ", or " Golden fog ", Their goal was to use pop structures to convey a message, and introduce the concept of " The Eighth Continent ".
" Golden fog " expresses the uneasiness in which the digital man lives, and " Zeppelins " describes, the dreams in which he escapes.
Wanting to dig deeper on this, in the summer of 2011 Natas Loves you took over a family house in the mountains of north eastern France, to write and record new songs.
After trying out their new songs live in the fall of 2011 ( Régine , Bus Palladium, Trinitaires ), Natas Loves You started working on the video for their single " light as air " ( released in February 2012 ).
In the spring, they are going to London to record parts of their concept album on which they have been working for a quite some time now.
