Nai Harvest

Nai Harvest are a two-piece emo/indie/alternative band from Sheffield, England that formed in 2011. They've put out a ton of material since they got started, and have really progressed as a band. They've also worked with a ton of great labels, most notably Dog Knight Productions, and their last LP came out on Topshelf. Needless to say, they've been making a name for themselves. And rightfully so. Their earliest material is some of the best 90's midwest emo revival to come out, with some great Kinsella-esque guitar work, and vocal shouts similar to the other Kinsella. For a two-piece, they really had a full sound, thanks to some busy guitar work and drums that manage to stay all over the place.

As they went on, their sound evolved to include a more expansive palette of influence, though still quite obviously rooted in 90's worship. Thick, distorted guitar tones topped with pop melodies began to take the forefront, kind of comparable to other modern bands with a serious nostalgic sensibility for a decade long gone, such as Wavves. There's nothing wrong with that of course, since it's a sound that works, whether it be from then or now. Great stuff all around. Enjoy.
