The Natterjacks are an indie folk band from Chesterfield in Derbyshire that are all about creating a great live atmosphere with sing-along choruses and foot stomping, banjo filled breakdowns. The duo consists of Freddie Bingham & Mark Evans, aged 20 & 21. They began playing together in the winter of 2010 after being friends at school for a number of years and as time progressed, so did their music, leading to the formation of ‘The Natterjacks’. Now, with their guitars and banjos, accompanied by the forceful thud of a kick drum and tambourine, the duo produce music with influences from The Avett Brothers, Ben Howard & the likes of Mumford and Sons. Considering there’re only two members, it’s been said that the band ‘make a huge sound’ despite only being a duo. Their debut album, ‘Highlands’, released in August last year includes the singles ‘Dark Days’ and ‘Red Skies’ along with a handful of other singles which have gained recognition from the popular DAB radio station, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing Sheffield & BBC Introducing in the East Midlands; leading to slots on the BBC Introducing Stage at festivals along with regular airplay on the regional BBC radio stations.
