Local Natives

California's Local Natives make hooky, nuanced rock that balances post-punk urgency with folk-tinged lyricism. The group had a buzzy moment in 2009 when their debut album, Gorilla Manor, grabbed fans and critical praise for its vibrant mix of kinetic tribal rhythms and soaring falsetto harmonies. Since then, the band have expanded upon that sound, exploring a darker, more ambient aesthetic on 2013's Hummingbird, adding synths and electronics into the mix for 2016's Sunlit Youth, and digging deep into a textural, '70s adult-contemporary vibe for 2019's Violet Street.
