Bio

Face-to-face songwriting and musical interplay put to tape: the classic studio setting is juxtaposed on Local Natives' fourth full-length, Violet Street [Loma Vista Recordings] with modern production and visuals to form a timeless album. The band's signature soaring 3-part harmonies are augmented by loops of tape, physically spilled and transformed by hand, the result of experimenting in the studio with producer Shawn Everett [Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs] is a band renewed._x000D_
In essence, Local Natives [Taylor Rice (vocals, guitar), Kelcey Ayer (vocals, keys), Ryan Hahn (vocals, guitar), Matt Frazier (drums), and Nik Ewing (vocals, bass, keys)] return to the methods of their 2009 debut Gorilla Manor, but with the bonds of their union fortified and with the growth and wisdom accrued in the studio and on stage in front of millions of worldwide fans. "The record is about us reconnecting to playing off of each other," states Taylor.
