The Nature Strip ranks in the Top 20 sexiest all-male bands that straddle Sydney’s Inner West and beach-loving East. They unite the suburbs not only with their rugged physical appeal but with their swash-buckling, life-loving, tree-hugging popper most rock music. Their second album Presents, new on China Pig Records in July 2016, is a feast for the senses.
The Nature Strip wears no uniform and adheres to no musical genre master but rather the goddess of melody and the dictates of groove and noise. How else to explain the unity found among the continents of styles here? It is all found on The Nature Strip, pop detritus from the new wave era and beyond (XTC, Blondie, Talking Heads, the dB’s, Guided by Voices, Cheap Tric) that has been refurbished and repurposed for modern usage.
