The Natvral - "A Glass of Laughter"

The Natvral, aka Kip Berman from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's current Americana based project, has released a new song that fits right in line with his previous single. "Lucifer's Glory" was somewhere between Springsteen's more anthemic hits and Nebraska, and "A Glass of Laughter," the latest, moves even more towards the anthemic side of The Boss. It's a rollicking track that sounds like Springsteen doing his best Dylan through an indie rock filter. This is just great rock music that drops a lot of indie rock's pretention and isn't afraid to worship at the altars of the rock gods that came before.

Kip Berman says of his new song:

"In love, there are times after the good times— when sweet nothings give way to sour somethings, and what once passed for charming is viewed in a less forgiving light. Noble poverty may reveal itself as mere privation. The impulsive gestures of youth are now recast as irresponsibility."But let’s raise a glass, shall we - not to drown these sorrows, but to throw ‘em a lifeline. Heraclitus might’ve been right about the river. But it need not be a meditation on corruption or irretrievable loss. Time changes us, and not always for the worse. What was once can’t be again, or at least not exactly. But maybe it can be something else worth our time, a new good time waiting for us on the other side. Here’s to finding out."

You can watch the video for "A Glass of Laughter" below. Summer of No Light is due out September 1 on Dirty Bingo Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on The Natvral, check out the artist's website.
