Font – Natalie’s Song

Austin’s post-punk quintet Font releases “Natalie’s Song,” the climactic finale from their upcoming debut album “Strange Burden,” set for release on July 12 via Acrophase Records. This track exemplifies the band’s signature blend of discordant and jangly guitars, almost-disco drum beats, and an unrelenting vocal melody, creating a sound that bridges the past and future of pop music.

The song’s recording showcases Font’s skill in harnessing major key exaltation, with Thom Waddill’s lyrics delivered in a rhythmic, almost percussive manner. This builds an intense, almost cathartic release for listeners, mirroring the band’s ethos of “Release and respond.”

The accompanying lyric video, crafted by the band, features lyrics projected over collages on handmade screens in a friend’s wood shop, echoing the track’s thematic elements and artistic influences, such as Joan Jonas and Jenny Holzer.

Font, formed in early 2022, consists of Thom Waddill (guitar/synth/vocals), Jack Owens (drums), Anthony Laurence (guitar/synth/sampler), Logan Wagner (percussion/sampler), and Roman Parnell (bass/synth). Their music is a dynamic blend of sampled stabs, dance beats, and euphoric choruses, making “Natalie’s Song” a testament to their innovative sound.
