While working towards his PhD in biochemistry at the University of Gothenburg, Jose Gonzalez' music career began to take shape, eventually forcing him to choose a career in music over one in research. The foundation on which he builds his songs is the same on which he built his studies - he attacks his music patiently, methodically and with great interest in finding unexpected angles. In Our Nature is about exploring these angels. In Our Nature was recorded entirely on tape at a Gothenburg studio. Though Gonzalez spent a great deal of time writing these new songs - playing them over and over into a voice recorder until he was confident in their arrangements - the actual recording of the album happened very quickly, taking less than two weeks in the studio to record ten songs. While it is sonically similar to Veneer, In Our Nature shows Gonzalez' growth as a songwriter. Displaying a heightened emphasis on melody and strong, focused lyrics - the album is a dark combination of softness and anger that is at once mesmerizing, intimate and hauntingly epic.
