Nature Cruise are the trio of Eric, Laura, and Steven: high school buddies from Long Island, NY, who’ve grown up and reunited to take a fresh approach to making music together. Their approach is clear — a tight, forceful rock band crafting meticulously composed and arranged pop songs — so it’s no surprise that they often put their spin on covers of classic pop gems from the likes of Tears For Fears and Michael Jackson at live shows. They stopped by BTR Live Studio to share a first look at their music – both revived material and brand new songs – and to share some of the background on this fresh project.
Featured Song: “Toy”
