Local Natives – Breakers

Easily one of my favorite albums from 2010, Local Natives‘ debut Gorilla Major is another building block to my growing passion for music. They’re back this year with Breakers, first single off their upcoming 2013 release Hummingbird, slated for a January 23 release via Frenchkiss/Infectious.

Breakers is an intensely satisfying track. The seamless collaboration of so many moving parts is next level shit. Percussion, keys, and beats from every direction. I’d say it’s impossible not to ride their unbreakable harmonies into a deep daydream. It’s vanilla.

And guys, it’s your lucky day. I have it on good word that Local Natives are going on a huge tour early next year. In fact, I already have my ticket. An exclusive artist presale is up on their site and they’re hitting DC April 5 @ the 9:30 Club. Tour details after the jump…
