U.K. Post Punk outfit NAUT will be releasing their first full length album, Hunt, on February 24, 2022 via Season of Mist. The band has shared the first single, “Unity of Opposites,” which features special guest Chris ‘Stig’ Miller (AMEBIX) handling the spoken word verses. Their topic blends with their approach to the album as a whole, looking at big truths that even ancient writers have tackled in the past.
At last! It has been a long time coming, but finally we can reveal the first single from our debut album. We feel that ‘Unity of Opposites’ best sums up our sound and the approach we have taken with ‘Hunt’: dancefloor hits mixed with our blend of knife-edge rock and post-punk. It was inspired by the writings of Heraclitus and how this still relates to our current world as a seemingly universal truth, the pendulum swings back and forth, to the same place but it’s never the same motion. To top it off, Chris ‘Stig’ Miller from legendary UK band Amebix lends his talents to a short spoken word section in the song, and it was wonderful to have him do so.
NAUT are a four piece drum machine Rock band from Bristol, who have a shared love of Classic Rock and Metal, alongside reverence for the post-punk pioneers of the late 70s and early 80s. Their lyrics touch on “mental paralysis, impending doom and divided peoples”, and feel that their lyrics have become more relevant than ever in the current world.
