Dame Nature is a six-piece indie rock band from Newfoundland. Formed in 2011 under the name City on the Coast, the group released a self-titled EP in 2012 which was met with provincial success and was described as "a breath of fresh Atlantic air". Over the past four years the band has played extensively in and around St. John's, having performed at Lawnya Vawnya II (2012), with Said the Whale at the Rock House (2013) and NL Folk Fest (2014). As COTC they ranked in the top 5 provincially in the CBC Searchlight competition (2013) with their song The Key.
The band delivers a focused upbeat sound, layered with tuneful harmonies and catchy hooks. Dame Nature's debut full length album was released in May of 2016 and was supported by an eastern Canadian tour. In 2016, the album has been included on The Overcast's Boreal Music prize short-list.
