UK Post-Punk outfit Naut will be releasing a new full length, Hunt, on February 24, 2022 via Season of Mist, making it the band’s debut to the label. The band is now streaming the album in its entirety ahead of Friday’s release.
It is with pleasure that we share our debut album with you today, in full! ‘Hunt’ is something very dear to us, a statement of intent in terms of what NAUT is and the starting point of what we hope will continue to be an interesting foray into the nightside of us as a band and individuals. We thank Season of Mist for their continued support and for allowing us creative freedom. Thank you to everyone who has streamed the singles, watched the videos and taken time out to contact us or comment on them. We hope the rest of the songs on this album fill you with the magic that we have breathed into them – may you shed your skin and dance amongst the ruins! Hopefully see you on the road.
