SONG OF THE DAY: Local Natives
  • TUESDAY, JUNE 07, 2016

  • Posted by: Lea Weatherby



Yesterday, indie rock band, Local Natives announced the September 9th release of their third album, Sunlit Youth, and dropped the video for the record's opening track, "Villainy." With lyrics like, "Step out into the sun/It takes a moment for your eyes to adjust" the homage to the band's hometown is a sonically rich and dewy track, arriving just in time for hot days and late summer nights.

"A lot of the excitement in making this new album came from discovering how to make songs in different ways. You start thinking, 'What do I want to hear?' Forget about what we've done and what people expect. This is a song that I would want to hear. Lyrically, Villainy is about realizing that you have the ability to change your situation, that you can start again every day. We applied that to how we made music this time around. We wanted all the new songs to have a different energy, to challenge ourselves to do something different each time." - Ryan Hahn (guitar/keyboard/vocals)
