Local Natives

Pastoral guitarists Local Natives haven’t really done anything LP-wise since 2010’s ‘Gorilla Manor’, but all that’s about to change with the 28 Jan release of their sophomore record ‘Hummingbird’. It was overseen by The National’s Aaron Desner at his in-house studio in Brooklyn, an ad hoc collaboration that came about after the two bands became touring partners.

Just ask drummer Matt Frazier, who says: “One night, after maybe drinking a little bit too much, he was like, ‘Maybe I should work with you guys’. We were like, ‘Sure, buddy’. After meeting with all these other producers, it just seemed like we should work with somebody we really get along with and respect as a songwriter”.

Local Natives have a live date booked at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on 6 Dec, after which they’ll appear at The National’s sold-out ATP festival.
