It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from the harmony-happy Los Angeles band Local Natives. Hummingbird, their last album, came out in 2013, and they’ve been fairly quiet since then. But out of the blue, the band has posted a new song today, and it’s a good one. “Past Lives” is a big, driving, searching song, the sort of song that will sound great when they’re wailing it from festival stages this summer. Check it out below.
So: There has to be a new album coming, right? You don’t just throw a song like this out there for no reason.
