The Skinny: Inspired by bands like Pavement, Manchester Orchestra and The Vines, The Naturalists have, according to The Wild Honey Pie, “a giant sound – propulsive percussion, static guitars and a driving bass – layered with the kind of vocal that brings back the hey-day of emo/punk.”

Austin Town Hall calls “What Puts You To Sleep” a “great sort of emo style throwback jam full of emotion and a powerful rock sound.” The Naturalists are currently touring the east coast for the rest of the summer in anticipation of the new EP.
