Cola and Natan AK review

Natan AK – Harley

Genre: Indie Rock, Indie Pop, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Alex G, Slow Pulp, Mannequin Pussy

J.D. Salinger wrote about his teenage woes. His character Holden was very popular with readers. Where did that get him through? Famous without wanting to leave his house, and hounded by people demanding an answer to life’s riddles. 

The myth goes that on the rare occasion where Mr Salinger would speak to his stalkers, he would confess he had no answers on which to lean on himself, but that he understood their desire to find them. Most modern songwriters may wish that they only had such luxury problems. 

Natan AK has plenty of questions. And, the character he creates on Harley might just get him a few knowledge-seeking stalkers. This is indie-rock music for aimless road trips. It’s a song that asks all the tough questions and doesn’t seek answers. And, really, Natan AK knows that this is all one should be doing in their youth. 


Cola – So Excited

Genre: Post-Punk, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Ought, Dry Cleaning, The Strokes, Yard Act, Geese, Shame, Squid

If regular rock music is a way to take care of vital needs, post-punk is an itch that one can never scratch. It’s the soundtrack to living life in a way that is just a little bit not right. It’s the sound of imbalance.

There aren’t many opportunities for celebration when it comes to this kind of music. The ball never crosses the line. In fact, it’s hard to tell if anybody’s even bothered drawing a line in the first place. 

Yet, Cola’s So Excited is almost an exception. This is a post-punk song that isn’t quite celebratory in nature. Rather it feels like music made by someone that has just avoided a tragedy. It’s a jittery type of sound that Cola gets just right.
