One To Watch: Nathanna
Crafting guitar-centric indie rock out of Stocksbridge, Sheffield, up-and-coming four-piece Nathanna - presumably a portmanteau of singer Nat's, and drummer Anna's names - blend red-hot-raw riffs with Jack Haywood's groove-loaded bass, and early Alex Turner-esque vocals. Latest offering Perfume, is a raucous indie rock 'n' roll affair, with a distinctly Franz Ferdinand feel to it in parts, showcasing a more refined sound to their earlier works with the added benefit of a short but fiery guitar solo, courtesy of lead guitarist Ewan Knight. Think Arctic Monkeys with added funk.
