Local Natives – “Past Lives”

There are few who can introduce a synthesizer hook and still manage to hold onto a raw indie naturalness, but Local Natives have found the delicate position in which a balance is struck. On “Past Lives”, swells of sound are propelled by percussion shifts while crooning harmonies keep the track active, as though it’s running through a thick forest, searching for something — perhaps the moments we lose when we become too stuck in thought. An excellent example of the power of starting small, the track could be listened to a thousand times and new patterns would emerge within the tunes and rapid changes.

“Past Lives” is the first single from Local Natives third LP. To keep up with Local Natives as we await more music and news, check out their website, Facebook page, and SoundCloud.
