I'm not exactly sure when it happened but somewhere in the dead of night when no one was paying attention, California indie rock outfit Local Natives skyrocketed to indie fame. Enough to sell out three venues on a three day stopover in New York long before their new record even streeted and enough to inspire a special film by beloved music video creators La Blogotheque.
This video of Local Natives comes from a longer movie Soiree de Poche #32 that has Local Natives playing for a crowd of invited guests in a Parisian flat. There's more to come but it's immediately clear this one is special. Local Natives inspiring more than La Blogotheque's standard takeaway. I'm pretty darn excited to see the rest of this and sincerely hope they played "Breakers".
Local Natives sophomore record Hummingbird is out now on Frenchkiss Records.
