Local Natives make soaring, sky-scraping harmonies, dreamy orchestral melodies, and throbbing tribal beats that bash their way into your soul. Drawing a line from the vocal stylings of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the Zombies through the more esoteric edges of post-punk and Afrobeat, this California five piece has crafted a brand of indie rock all their own. For Local Natives, everything is a collaboration, from songwriting duties to their self-produced artwork. Named after a place where the band lived together in Orange County, their debut album, Gorilla Manor, features twelve sumptuous slices of dappled California sunlight and beguiling percussive rhythms.
