In 2011, a collaboration of friends and musicians within the Edmonton skateboarding community became Nature Of. Since their assembly, the band has been writing music together while constantly evolving and developing a unique and organic sound. In 2018, Nature Of were announced as the winners of Bent River Records’ recording competition sponsored by CKUA Radio Network, granting them the opportunity to work with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, Stars) on a new full-length record. Recording took place over the course of 2018, and the album, The Mean, is slated to be released in June 2019. With four cross-Canada tours under their belt, the group is steadily asserting itself as a contender in music communities both in Alberta and across the country. With their honest music and modest attitude, Nature Of is sure to continue progressing and inspiring for years to come.
