Local Natives – Heavy Feet
Hummingbird, The much anticipated sophomore LP from Local Natives will be released late this month. “Heavy Feet” is the second track off the album and it is just as strong as anything on Gorilla Manor. The track is driven by slow chord changes, but backed up with a fast, chaotic drum beat. It’s emotional, powerful, and pretty. Can Local Natives sustain the hype that they received from Gorilla Manor? Or will it be as mellow of a release as The xx’s Coexist? Luckily, I don’t think Local Natives are falling into the trap of releasing the best of their album before it comes out.
