The Natvral - "Summer of Hell"

The Natvral, aka Kip Berman formerly of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, continues making anthemic music for his upcoming album. The latest single, "Summer of Hell," starts off a little more folky and more like his 2021 album Tethers. The song quickly switches off to The Natvral's anthemic, rootsy alt-rock sound we've been hearing lately. A song like "Summer of Hell" sounds like if Nebraska had stayed as solo home recordings and The E Street band ended up recording them. It's a great loud folk rock song that is making Summer of No Light a highly anticipated album for us.

Kip Berman says of his new single:

"Rich kids slum it, young adults cling to the costume of youth, day and night are just different reasons to draw the blinds, impetuous love turns to rancor, and a faint yellow cloud of decadent penury settles upon a crumbling shared rental. You won’t be getting your security deposit back. Friends go and come and go again, and there’s a fellow hanging about called “the doctor” that no medical board would rightly certify. It only ends when pantomimed tragedy gives way to the real deal -- or the season changes."

You can listen to "Summer of Hell" below. Summer of No Light is due out September 1 on Dirty Bingo, and is available for pre-order here. For more on The Natvral, check out the artist on Facebook and Instagram.
