They’re back! Following a three year span with no new music, Local Natives have returned with new single Past Lives. Past Lives will surely be known as the first single off the bands upcoming third album, which they have been hinting at on Instagram for some time now.
Local Natives are one of those bands that loves to mix it up. Their first two albums were very different. Their first a much prettier, more uplifting sound, whereas the second featured a much darker vibe. The first receiving widespread acclaim, while the second was given a somewhat mixed reception. Past Lives seems to lean a bit more towards their earlier work, with traces of their second album Hummingbird.
The tack was released earlier this morning, and I can’t stop listening to it. Undoubtedly an impressive way to make a return.
