Local Natives is an American indie rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California in 2009. They dropped their debut album, Gorilla Manor in November 2009 in the UK. They recently released their third album Sunlit Youth on September 9, 2016. It’s much more uplifting and youthful compared to their previous work. Many of the songs on their new album offer a powerful buildup that makes them catchy and easy to listen to. While listening to Local Natives first two albums you get a calm relaxing feeling but while listening to their newest album you get a more exciting feeling. You can definitely tell that the band experimented with more electronic sounds especially in the tracks “Villainy” and “Jellyfish”. While the track “Psycho Lovers” has a stronger guitar presence, each song features different tones that makes them each stand out from the others. It’s amazing how you can tell just how passionate they are in each song.“Fountain of Youth” stands out more than any other song on the album by focusing on their vocals more than anything.. The singles that were released are amazing, some of the best songs by the band. Every song is unique and you can connect with each of them in a different way. By the time the final song on the album comes on you’re ready to hear more. You can check out Local Natives new album Sunlit Youth on Spotify, Itunes, Youtube, or purchase it in stores.
