Local Natives’ second album “Hummingbird” was released earlier this year, and now they are ready to present their material live at VoxHall the 5th of November.
“Grizzly Bear of the west coast” they’ve been called. When you listen to Local Natives’ newest album “Hummingbird” you can easily relate the band to Grizzly Bear, Efterklang, Real Estate and Elbow. They use epic, deep drums, and harmonic piano to make the listener flow away. With this new album you can easily hear the more floating site compared with their 2009 debut album “Gorilla Manor” but the differences don’t seem that big – we are fans!
Two Danish locations have been picked for this new tour (Copenhagen 4th/Aarhus 5th of November) and they could very well be more than interesting for festival bookers in the country. Sure, Local Natives would suit one of the stages at Roskilde Festival (which artist doesn’t fit in at Roskilde!?), but also NorthSide Festival could find Local Natives interesting for their 2014 lineup. With the new movement of Red Stage and additional 5.000 attendees next year, these American indie-rockers would suit the lineup.
Only days ago the boys turned O2 Academy Brixton into a ‘major pilgrimage place for indie-lovers’ and all in all got a review stating that their show was ‘one of the best shows ever that was well-received and appreciated by the audience – a show that reminded us that music is so much more than just a product of industries.’
November 4th Local Natives will also play a concert in Copenhagen at VEGA. There are still tickets available for both concerts, so if you like American indie and you want to explore a really interesting name, you should buy a ticket for Local Natives.
