Modern Natives is a new up-and-coming band that is specifically known for merging upbeat tunes with deep and powerful messages that try to create some form of social change. This music is a reflection of the social-good goals of these singers who work tumultuously to highlight the plight of those that are most affected by the oppressive regimes that they live in. Modern Natives, thus, stands distinctively as a band that realizes the true power of music in creating actual progress.
This Punk trio believes that Paxton Smith’s valedictorian speech shed light on the issue of abortion and in doing so also illuminated the larger question around bodily autonomy. With the recent onslaught against abortion by pro-lifers, there is a renewed debate on the ethics of abortion. For Modern Natives, the debate seems to be tilted in one favor and as more states join into the tussle the band believes that it’s important to use music as a mode of emotive expression.
“This Belongs To Me” is a novel single that soldiers against the regressive politics that has taken hold of American society. Taking away the right to abortion essentially means that you take away multiple freedoms and create barriers to safe healthcare. Additionally, the eclectic artists know that people would continue to seek abortions either way; it’s just that those methods would lead to many more complications. In this sense, this single is similar to “Holes and Joes” which attempts to use catchy tunes and deep lyrics as a means of knocking some sense into the minds of those that support this right with finality.
It is this music that makes listeners excited, pumped, and empowered in a way never seen before. The talented artists are preparing to go on tour to support their latest releases starting in late August 2022. The tour’s first leg is through Canada, down the West Coast, and across the Southern US. Modern Natives is excited to bring their high-energy live shows to new audiences to share their positivity and sound!
