Intuitively blending folk, noise, and snippets of pop into a natural, experimental full, First Nation features singer/guitarists Nina Mehta and Kate Rosko and percussionist Melissa Livaudais. THE BRAND NEW York City-based trio got its begin when Mehta and Rosko, who was simply playing together for some time, started jamming with shared friend Livaudais (who was simply formerly an associate of Wikkid and in addition has in Telepathe). After spending a season exercising and honing their audio — which revolves around split vocals, circular electric guitar parts, and volatile, expressive rhythms — they started playing live schedules, you start with a tsunami advantage in January 2005; down the road, the band distributed the stage with serves such as for example Excepter and Gang Gang Dance. Initial Nation caught the interest of Pet Collective, who agreed upon the band with their Paw Monitors imprint and had taken the music group on tour with them. Their debut one, Coronation, found its way to early 2006, using the full-length First Country following that summertime. After Livaudais still left the lineup and was changed by Abby Portner (sister of Pet Collective’s Dave Portner), the trio revamped their audio and continuing onward as Bands.
