"NATALIE - "Negative Attitude Is Not A Little Effort EP" - 2011"

After finding a sliver of 'spare time' , I decided it's high time I do another written album review for The Grind.
I asked my host Chris Burnside to hook me up with a new album, and in doing so he not only chose a great band, but one who's language that is all but alien to me.
Considering writing is NOT my strong point, having recently read the previous entries by other contributors to our site, and knowing how long it had been since I last reviewed an album on here, I wanted to chime in my 3 cents worth. I was up for the challenge!

NATALIE
Hailing from Jakarta, Indonesia, the band 'Natalie' ('Negative Attitude Is Not A Little Effort), was formed in '05. Their sound has evolved considerably through their career, starting with a blend of grunge and punk, then taking on a much lighter brand of melodic pop-punk as the years progressed.
Their EP “Negative Attitude Is Not A Little Effort.” features 6 new songs, (3 in English, 3 in Indonesian), including the previously released “Better To Be Silence.” Natalie record the effort at Vandal Destructor Studio in Cengkareng, Jakarta.

After listening to this album off and on for 2 days straight, it does become easier to recognize the similarities that exist among punk, alternative, metal, indie, and hardcore.
These similarities are the reason why bands like 'Natalie' exist. The new album displays growth and an overall tighter focus for 'Natalie', exposing themselves to a lighter frame of music.
Negative contains a much greater variety of guitar lines and maintains the interest level in listeners from start to finish.
But Negative still does very little to distinguish the group from their influences or their contemporaries. Their sound is still fairly archetypal for their genre, and they don’t take any big risks to try to do something unique or progressive. It is true that punk is usually not a particularly 'progressive' genre as a rule, but with so many young, aspiring melodic punk bands appearing in recent years, 'Natalie' will need to do something to stand out from the rest.
Putting the lack of being extraordinary aside, though, Negative is a good album for 'Natalie', and it makes sense as the next step in their development as a band. After many line-up changes, they’ve figured out the framework of the sound they want to make: lighter, fresher and with a positive feeling; while smoothing out the flaws in their music and firming up the basics that needed work.
Most people listening to melodic punk aren’t listening because they want to have their minds blown. In that sense, 'Natalie' is doing exactly what they should be doing with their music. Addictive melody, lyrics and heart haunting delays, provide the strong support that will carry this band's growth potential..Hopefully the group can uphold that consistency moving forward, while simultaneously fleshing out their identity as a group apart from the rest of their scene.
I am, however, duly impressed about the mix of English and Indonesian songs, even though I didn't know what they may have been singing about in their own language, I could feel it, as those of you involved in music, or as a musician would know what point I am trying to make.

Negative represents, what hard work, dedication, empty pockets and a struggling family life in one of the most poorest countries in the world could provide in return…motivation to do it even better!
'Natalie' are currently recording their next full length album, which will hopefully be released mid-2012. Definitely a good new(ish) band to keep your ears peaked. - http://thegrindprc.ca
