    Local Natives are out with a new video for "Dark Days," one of the highlight tracks off of their 2016 album Sunlit Youth. The official video doubles up as a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, where the band members travel to several different locations to record. The locations are nothing short of gorgeous, as we see desert-like scenery, plants, water, and warm weather. If you've been itching to go on vacation, this video is only going to make you a little bit itchier...

    Info on the video from the band below:

    "'Dark Days' is a bit of a misleading name. It's a nostalgic song about high school first loves and all the intensity and tension surrounding them, mixed with a little dose of religious guilt. Growing up in Southern California, we didn't have many days without sun. 'Dark Days' brought to mind good memories of swimming on rainy days and sneaking out to your girlfriend's house.

    We'd never done a duet before and when we brainstormed on our favorite female vocalists, Nina Persson immediately came to mind. We'd never met or had any connection to her prior, but she gave us a chance and we're so happy to have her beautiful voice on our record.

    This footage is from the past two years of making Sunlit Youth. Instead of just going to a 'proper studio' in LA, we used most of our recording budget to travel and work in some beautiful locations. Our friend Jonathan came along and filmed us in Thailand, Malaysia, Joshua Tree, Ojai, Nicaragua and London. Not really sure why Taylor was naked..."
