The Los Angeles quintet makes music that crackles with frenetic beats, agile melodies and cascading harmonies, tightly assembled in songs that advocate, in varying degrees of exuberance and wonderment. Their harmonic style is indicative of the influence of hazy beach bums of 60s SoCal and zombified Brit pop, while their percussion philosophy derives from somewhere more natural: a unifying connection between the five-piece developed over hours spent living together in their own guerilla hideaway in Silverlake, California. The album has the warmth and instant attraction of hearing the Fleet Foxes, mid period Talking Heads or Band of Horses for the first time, and will be available 2nd November.
The new single Camera Talk is available now as a download and 7″ with exclusive artwork by the band and a cover of Talking Heads ‘Warning Sign’ as the b-side. We are very lucky to have them back in the UK in January for a one off show at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen with special guests. The first 50 people to arrive will also get a free Local Natives 7″.
