Cleveland’s Nate Eberhardt, known for playing in punk and hardcore bands, has taken production into his own hands to show his versatility. NATURE blends elements of 80’s electronics, Afrofuturism, coldwave and post-punk. The project was inspired by finding one’s inner voices. These ideas come out fluently in the melodies and rhythms. “ALL IN TIME was one of the last songs I wrote on VOIX, I felt it expressed the best introduction to Nature. My goal with the album was to bring the listeners to a familiar place, with All In Time marks the introduction to that familiar place.” This music video was shot by Nat Cherry in Queens, New York City. Set out to capture Nature’s ghostly essence and give the world an introduction to the music.
VOIX was inspired by W.E.B. Du Bois’ idea of “Double Consciousness” and finding one’s inner voice. These ideas come out fluently in the lyrics, drum patterns and synth composition on the VOIX. The debut of NATURE is only the beginning of Eberhardt’s journey into electronic music and leaves the listener in anticipation. Afro-coldwave has arrived. Nate Eberhardt explains why he started N A T U R E… “With love on our minds and fire in our hearts this album invites the listeners into the world of Nature. I wanted to create a project where people can dance and feel inspired to create despite the day to day hardships we all go through. I feel I brought the listeners to a place that was familiar to me.”
