We recently received one of our favorite EP's of the year by way of Brooklyn, a young band called YOUR NATURE. We spun it and spun it, and then started playing it on the radio show, and now we keep getting deeper and deeper into the tracks, getting past our early favorites and realizing just how strong the complete output truly is. This spurned us to track them down and ask them some questions. Here's the interview....

FS: I understand you were formerly a band called FRANKPOLLIS, was that a combo of John Frank and the Pollis brothers? What happened to Frankpollis and why Your Nature?

YN: Yea. We transformed because we had a new member (Malcolm) and the sound was changing.

FS: So the band consists of 2 brothers and 2 friends. When it comes to big band decisions, do you take sides ever? Bros vs friends?

YN: Not really. We're all friends. Of course brothers fight sometimes, but when it comes to big decisions we all draw straws and then drink milkshakes with the straws... And then we decide.

FS: For a relatively new band, you've done well on the press tip - Spin, Brooklyn Vegan, Paper, and now Future Sounds. You guys must be doing something right, what's the secret sauce?

YN: We don't really know. That kinda stuff just happens, but we could always use more..

FS: Since it's arrival into the Future Sounds HQ, we've played the hell out of 'Your Nature EP'. I have to say it's an impressive output, and what I really like about it is that you went for it and thought big! What was the intent behind the EP and your approach to songwriting in general?

YN: We went into the studio to record as many songs as possible and eventually we just chose the songs that came out well and sounded good together. Throughout the mixing we noticed that a lot of the songs had a strange feeling of moving forward. Like driving, or flying, or sailing or just zooming through space. Hence "Forward Motion."

FS: The "record industry" is in trouble is the doom and gloom story you hear everywhere, but are you guys caught up in the dinosaur or do you think this new 'wild west' approach to getting heard and putting music out is to your advantage?

YN: The "wild west" has treated us well so far, but of course everyone would like to tame a dinosaur.

FS: "Forward Motion" is a really big song, it's 4:11 and it's a ride. "Cherokee Blood" has been in our Hot 5 for weeks. "Sands" is also terrific, we could go on and on about this EP, what's your favorite track? How about favorite track to play live?

YN: "Triangle Eyes" is defnitely the most meaningful to us. It's fun to play and it's how we got our name in a way, "...categorize your nature."

FS: Will you be playing CMJ this October?

YN: Yes. Come see us, it's gonna be sweet. We don't know the schedule yet, but the show info will be posted on our myspace - www.myspace.com/yournature - soon. So check it out.

FS: A constant theme at Future Sounds is to find out who will become the next Your Nature. Can you guys tell us some cool bands that you know that aren't getting the proper attention that you can give a shout out to?

YN: Most of our friends are getting a lot of attention, which is great. But one band who we play with a lot and could always use attention is WILD YAKS.They're awesome. Their live show is unlike any other in New York.

FS: I understand the EP will be available for sale on iTunes soon, what's the release date?

YN: It should pop up in the next few weeks. It'll be availble on most online music stores. As of now, you can order straight from us, just go to our myspace - www.myspace.com/yournature, under blog, you will see the instruction.

FS: Thanks for your time!

YN: Thanks a lot! Appreciate the support.

I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It’s pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all site
owners and bloggers made good
content as you did, the internet will be
much more useful than ever before.
