LISTEN: “Past Lives” by Local Natives

LA band Local Natives look to be ramping up to a new record, following 2003’s album Hummingbird.  Even though nothing official has been announced, the typical signs exist in a revamped website, new press photo and new music debuting in their recent gigs.  Plus, 8 days ago the band put up the official stream of “Past Lives” on Soundcloud; a track which has been played live in the past and synch’d to the TV show Flaked.  Do you think that’s enough to assume we’ll learn of a new album in the coming days?

Band member Taylor Rice says of the track:

“The world is not static, it’s made new over and over again. But we tend to live the same patterns in a loop, loving the same way, wrestling the same demons, the same dynamics playing out around us again and again. Untangling every moment and decision that led us to where we are now can make fate feel concrete, inescapable. But our world is not fixed, it’s constantly reemerging, and we can change it into whatever we want.
