After their third album in 2016, Sunlit Youth, I was hooked on the refreshing melodies of Local Natives that felt like a distant cousin of Radiohead and Grizzly Bear’s love child.
Much to my surprise and happiness, I saw this new one called Violet Street was coming out today.
I’ve already listened to the album three times and it is delightful. The sonic feels make for great driving music or nighttime relaxation. It has a wide range including the catchy pep of When Am I Gonna Lose You and the bittersweet melancholy of Tap Dancer.
