LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fresh, edgy and totally meaningful!
Hi Savannah, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
Modern Natives is a high-energy trio…
featuring melodic bass lines, audacious guitar, and a melting pot full of vocals. They love to have fun with their music while making sure the lyrics are meaningful. An ever-changing sound, blending rock, punk, pop and subgenres. Modern Natives are an explosive crossover – proof that punk isn’t dead.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released March 3, 2023. As the global public faces a tumultuous and uncertain future dictated by climate change, consumerism, and other pressing matters of our times, there is some solace to be found in the lingering melodies of music. The band is no exception as they tackle these issues head-on with their latest single, “Distro” – an inspired exploration into our collective reflection on the state of modernity.
Not only does their track explore the values that our society puts on material goods, but they tackle these ideas with a unique sound that has listeners thinking more deeply than ever before – something rarely seen in today’s landscape of pop culture.
Through a hauntingly beautiful blend of traditional alternative styles and modern rock influences, this single serves as both an emotive document for how far we have come and a beacon towards what needs to be done if we are to secure a brighter tomorrow.

What is your vision for this song?
Consumerism and environmentalism stir up conversations around difficult topics.
It’s really easy to take nature for granted when we have such ease of access to material goods to distract us and keep us ignorant to the destruction that production of these goods promotes.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
Our favorite part of this track is it’s instrumental and lyrical strength. The instruments are deep and powerful, as is the underlying message of the track.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events?
We are currently recording more releases to be distributed over the next 3-4 months. We are preparing to undergo our second tour starting in the US Midwest in April 2023 and taking us back to Alaska where we will be performing throughout the summer. We’re also developing more and more merchandise that’s available on our website. It’s the best way to support us directly and help us on the journey!
