LOCAL NATIVES 
RELEASE NEW SONG & VIDEO FOR TAP DANCERSTARRING BREAKOUT CONTEMPORARY CHOREOGRAPHER MICAELA TAYLOR

Local Natives’ new album, Violet Street, arrives this month on April 26 via Loma Vista Recordings. Today, the band reveals new song, Tap Dancer.
 

The classic studio setting is juxtaposed on Violet Street with modern production and visuals to form a timeless album. The band’s signature soaring three-part harmonies are augmented by loops of tape, physically spliced and transformed by hand. The result of experimenting in the studio with genius producer, Shawn Everett [Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs], is a band renewed. Tap Dancer is preceded by the recent release of the “shimmering” (Stereogum) track, Cafe Amarillo, and the lush, expansive lead single, When Am I Gonna Lose You, whose gripping video stars Kate Mara.

This spring, the band will embark on The Spiral Choir tour of North America, with stops in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal in May. See full list of tour dates below. Based in Los Angeles, the quintet progressed their blissful sound over the course of three full-length albums, Gorilla Manor [2009], Hummingbird [2013], and Sunlit Youth [2016]. The latter received praise from The FADER, Consequence of Sound and The Guardian. In between countless sold out shows and festival appearances – including a standout Coachella 2017 set – they’ve graced the stages of Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show With James Corden, and more.
