The Native

Formed when vocalist Charlie Noordewier and guitarist Ben Andrew were in secondary school, The Native first took shape in classes for GCSE Music. Jamming in practice rooms instead of doing their coursework, the pair eventually turned those initial ideas into a dreamy folk-facing EP that was released in February 2018. When offers of live shows started rolling a few months later, they recruited bassist Tom Booth alongside Harry Youngs on keys. Their line-up has also evolved with the addition of Fergus Segrove on drums.


The band went from strength to strength joining Bastille on their UK/EU 2022 arena tour. They made their TV debut on Soccer AM in August 2023 amid playing at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Reading & Leeds, Boardmasters and Isle of Wight. ‘Every Last Goodbye’ is the second track to be taken from their debut EP currently scheduled for release late this year. ‘Every Last Goodbye’ follows the previous single ‘Tramlines.’ Both singles plus their upcoming EP were also produced by industry legend John Cornfield whose expertise has helped guide Oasis, Muse, Supergrass, The Verve, Kenickie and The Stone Roses along with the likes of Robert Plant, Ben Howard, The Almighty and New Model Army.
