Local Natives have released their new album Violet Street to major critical praise. Released viaLoma Vista Recordings / Caroline AustraliaViolet Streetjuxtaposes the classic set up of a band playing live together in a room with genius producer Shawn Everett’s (Kacey Musgraves,Alabama ShakesThe War On Drugs) gonzo production experimentation. The result is a timeless album made for today, featuring the band’s signature 3-part harmonies and intricate layers, augmented by loops of tape, physically spliced and transformed by hand.

The soaring, blissful and introspective new album features previously released singles: lush and searching (Stereogum) When Am I Gonna Lose You, whose beautiful video stars Kate Mara; Café Amarillo, which FADER hails for “illustrating a sort of emotional purgatory;” and Tap Dancer, which Brooklyn Vegan praises for its “elegiac ache.” Megaton Mile has received strong Australian DSP support, receiving playlisting across Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple’s Best of the Week.
