Local Natives have released the first single from their upcoming album Hummingbird out January 29th. The song is called “Breakers” and definitely has a much fuller sound than their last album Gorilla Manor. This might have something to do with the fact that their tour mates have been Arcade Fire and The National. The chorus of the song gives the song a great boost and shot of energy. I can’t wait to hear what else the new album has in store.
