Born in the heart of the vibrant bristol music scene, euphoric rock five-piece Natural Tendency explore a new direction in rock music and bring it to life in a unique way.
Natural Tendency formed when vocalist/songwriter Ed Taylor began studying at the Bristol Institute of Modern Music alongside other musicians such as Steve Sparrow of Morning Parade. Their recent self-titled mini-album, with production & engineering provided by Adam “Nolly” Getgood of US djent rockers Periphery, showcases their maturity and diversity in songwriting. Further to that, the band soon made a name for themselves on the live circuit, completing gigs in Bristol and all around the South West. These include recent support slots with legendary British band InMe at the Swindon Furnace and grime star Tinchy Stryder at this year’s Youth For Youth Festival in Bristol, and a sell-out release show for the mini-album at the Bristol Cooler.
