Today’s Indie: Breakers / Local Natives

‘you’re breathing out only to breathe in / I know nothing’s wrong, but I’m not convinced’

Local Natives debuted a new track today off their upcoming sophomore album, Hummingbird, and it is awesome. A steady tap-tap-clap intro gives way to classic Local Natives soaring vocals, and the song has the kind of movement that pulls you right in with them. The lyrics speak a life perched precariously amdist the breakers: do you turn back to the safety of shore, or swim until you don’t see land? ¬†Or just stay where you are and continue to get pummeled?

Hummingbird will be out January 29th via Frenchkiss, and if it is anything like this debut, I am stoked. #indie/tory
