Read our exclusive interview with Local Natives.
7digital Three years on the road can take its toll on any band, but LA’s Local Natives had to contend with bereavement as well as in-band friction in the period following their debut album. Against the odds, they’ve weathered the storm, returning with a slightly reshuffled line-up and a sophomore album that not only draws on those difficult times, but transmutes them into a message of hope. Produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, Hummingbird finds the quartet eschewing the Afro-beat inflections of Gorilla Manor, for lush, widescreen dream-pop that swoons and soars. And while we’re struggling to single out highlights from an album of this caliber, the slow-burning beauty of "You and I" and the beatific whirl of "Breakers" provide a great route in to one of the first great records of 2013.
