Offering a southern vibe to alternative music, Dallas, TX based band, Northern National is setting sail for stardom. The five-piece rock band formed in August 2016 and released their debut EP, The New Age, later that year. Produced by Dan Stringer (X Ambassadors, Ms. Lauryn Hill), The New Age features 5 indie-rock gems, including their debut single, "Love Is Fire", which caught the attention of Spotify.

"Love is Fire" was featured on Spotify's Discover Weekly playlist and charted on Spotify's Viral 50 worldwide. Music curators such as Topsify, Filtr, and even Coca-Cola, have also featured the song on their playlists.  Since the release of The New Age, Northern National's songs have been streamed over 700,000 times and counting.

Sonically, Northern National has been compared to bands such as X Ambassadors, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Kings of Leon and Imagine Dragons. With an ever-growing fan base across the US, they aim to set out on their first national tour this year. The band considers the legendary House of Blues in Dallas their second home and have played festivals such as SXSW and Red Gorilla. Northern National has shared the stage with notable artists such as Andy Grammer, Echosmith, Mat Kearney, MAGIC!, and more.

Their latest single, “MoneyBlind”, released in April of 2017, proves that the group has a good head on their shoulders and is ready for the next step in their career. Teaming up with producer, Dan Stringer once again and mastering by John Davis of Metropolis Mastering (U2, Lana Del Ray, Royal Bloods), the single seamlessly bridges the gap between southern, indie, & alternative rock in a little under four minutes. “To us, “MoneyBlind” is a reminder that however much success we achieve - to not sacrifice the people, morals, and loved ones that matter most in your life. The road might be slower, but it’ll be worth it in the end,” the band states.

Northern National Tells a Captivating Story with “MoneyBlind”

Dallas, TX – Indie-rock band, Northern National released their new single, “MoneyBlind” featuring captivating guitar riffs, effortlessly intertwined with the mesmerizing vocals that incite listeners from the beginning. The first song co-written by the band as a whole, “MoneyBlind” showcases a unique blend of feel good beach vibes that move into a heavier, alternative rock energy allowing it to speak for itself. The single is now available for download or streaming on digital music platforms worldwide.

Produced by Dan Stringer (X Ambassadors, Johnny Stimson), mastered by John Davis (Lana Del Ray, U2, Royal Bloods), and recorded over a four-day span at Drive 35 Productions, “MoneyBlind” comes together placidly, speaking for itself, and represents exactly what it’s like to see Northern National perform live. The meaning behind “MoneyBlind” is just as captivating as the song itself. It tells the story of the pursuit of success, getting caught up in the chase, forgetting about the most important things in life, and finding yourself alone in your accomplishments. “To us, it’s a warning and reminder that however much success we achieve – to not sacrifice the people, morals, and loved ones that matter in your life to achieve that success,” the band explains. “The road might be slower, but it’ll be worth it in the end. Don’t be ‘MoneyBlind.’”
