Los Angeles band Local Natives first starting receiving attention after 2009's SXSW Festival where they soon had the internet abuzz. Their SXSW show paid off with their sights now set on the UK music industry, in which they first released Gorilla Manor last fall. They will debut the album on Frenchkiss Records stateside on February 16.
Local Natives' debut album (under the current name) is enjoyable from beginning to end. Their first single from Gorilla Manor is "Sun Hands" starts out with quiet, sweet sounding harmonies and builds until it explodes into raw emotion. Similar to the rest of the album, "Sun Hands" is just too easy to get stuck in your head.
