ATWN: Free Track of the Day – Local Natives "Breakers"
We love free music here at ATWN. We’re just a bunch of dumpster-diving internet freegans at heart. Lucky for you, we’re not interested in serving you a cup of joe with a splash of expired half n’ half and a four-day-old donut we found behind some mini-mart. We’re music hounds and we want you to beef up your library with a few free tunes. Today’s free track comes from Los Angeles’ Local Natives. Their first album, Gorilla Manor, introduced listeners to a unique sound that relied heavily on the groups use of vocal harmonies and the wonderful ability to carry a groove. Imagine the offspring of a one-night-stand between Fleet Foxes and Vampire Weekend and you’ve probably got a pretty good understanding of what you’re getting yourself into. The band released their second album, Hummingbird, on January 29th. Their first single, Breakers, has a beautiful rising build and is driven home by those pre-mentioned harmonies.
