The band was initially formed by Jack Fairbrother, Andy White, and Greg Day when they started jamming together at school. Jim Thomas and Ash Oliver, both originally from different bands, soon joined their group. Prior to becoming Natives, the members played together under the name Not Advised. Feeling like they needed a fresh start from their Not Advised days, they soon launched Natives. This was shortly after flying to Los Angeles to begin recording their debut full-length album with platinum-selling producer John Feldmann.

On November 13, 2013, the band announced they had signed record and publishing deals with Transmission Recordings and Notting Hill Music.

On Jan 21, 2014, Natives announced the release of their debut full length album Indoor War. The album was released March 17, 2014 on Transmission Recordings.

Indoor War tells the story of a character named Alvima, who suffers from a huge loss and can't deal with the pain. He then decides that he will live his life making decisions based on logic and science rather than emotions—a resolution of struggle between love and logic. The first half of the album lyrically talks about the tragic low points, where Alvima logically embraces his fate. The second half of the album talks about Alvima giving into embracing his emotions. There is a shift of balance from darkness and logic to feelings of positivity, love, and life.
