Growth and evolution are two things that every band lose sleep over, but Local Natives needn’t have bothered. The band’s third album is layered with eloquence, emotion and meticulous melodies. After their beautifully-honest second album, Hummingbird, the band have tossed out their rule books and landed on the extraordinary.

It paints a picture of a band who have matured past existential crises and delved deeper into their musical souls. The euphoria is evident from the first track, ‘Villainy’, proving that Local Natives have truly perfected their harmonies and vocal play. Gone are the bubbly, electronic riffs of old, and in are the sensual tunes of new.
