The frontman of the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Kip Berman, has announced his debut solo EP under the name Natvral. The EP, Know Me More, is set to be out October 5th via Kanine. Berman has shared the title track, featuring Fear of Men’s Jess Weiss, from the release. Listen to it below.
In a statement, Berman discusses his new moniker. “I wanted to pick up my guitar and sing songs in a natural way, without all the things about music that aren’t music,” he says. The four-track EP, which was produced by Andy Savours, was recorded at London’s Wolf Den Studios in single takes. A cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” is the closing track in the project.
