Local Natives have released a studio version of “Heavy Feet,” a track from their sophomore album, Hummingbirds. The cut was originally debuted on BBC Radio 6 last November and the band continues to make the in-studio rounds in anticipation of the record’s release. In an interview with Morning Becomes Electric host Jason Bentley that will air on LA’s KCRW on 1/11, Natives drummer Matt Frazier said that the “new songs are purposefully spare and bare” but “Heavy Feet” feels as melodically full as the songs on their first album, Gorilla Manor. Listen to the track below and take a sneak peek at the KRCW session here.
