Seattle post-punk duo Black Ferns have unveiled their “It’s In Your Nature” The video for “It’s In Your Nature”, from the band’s upcoming album, Devices. which is set for release this October through Northern Light Records.
“It’s In Your Nature” builds up a sense of dread with its serpentine bass line, guitars screeching softly in the background and percussion hissing like a pair lungs out of breath from the mechanics of rapid footfall, overlaid by seductive vocals that whisper loudly in pursuit.
Some say Black Ferns sounds like Love and Rocket and Interpol, but perhaps that is only because they authentically invoke the same reverb-soaked spectres of late 80s alternative rock and the post-punk revival—back when music was shared via a hand labelled Maxell cassette tape.
Regarding the song and video Black Ferns’ Zoran Macesic explains:
“The lyrics in the track “It’s In Your Nature” are about coming to grips that all things come to an end. Relinquishing a lost youth and the idea of immortality to the realities of time and nature — reluctantly taking on the burdens of a modern life.
In this abstract video created by bassist Chris Jordan, we follow an anonymous woman with no direction, as she gravitates toward something ominous and mysterious. Cloaked with depression and piloted by disillusion — she is hypnotized by a light that washes over her, as well as a daunting smoke on the horizon.”
