There is something intimate about playing in a small living room with a small audience listening to your every word. People standing on every step, crammed in every corner, leaning on each others shoulders, Local Natives make the most of a small situation. With their first singles like “Wide Eyes” and “Airplanes”, I knew these guys were good but their sound was missing something, they needed…something, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
But with their follow up album entitled HummingBird, they displayed a sense of maturity. Playing in large venues or playing in a living room doesn’t matter to them; playing what they love is what matters the most.
