TGIF: Favourite Song Right Now

This uplifting and colourful Local Natives earworm, off their second LP Hummingbird, reminds me of something melodically caught in between Grizzly Bear and Beach House's romance-pop anthems. Lead singer Kelcey Ayer's vibrato coo rolling over top of the tune's sparkling swell - which consists of barely there piano, spastic guitars and marching band percussion - resembles a pretty page out of The National (Aaron Dessner produced Hummingbird) or Arcade Fire's effervescent, stadium-rock-ready soundbook. Paired with the organic lyrics, "Breathing out/ Hoping to breathe in/ I know nothing's wrong but I'm not convinced," Local Natives might be hitting their stride with this new release.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
