Local Natives Premiere Sunny New Video For “World News,” Make Late Night Debut On Ferguson

LA quintet Local Natives unveiled the brand new video for Gorilla Manor highlight “World News” today on Pitchfork. The clip features everything from creepy, headset-donning doppelgangers to an amazing Frisbee-fetching kanine, with plenty of beach frolicking thrown in between – watch for the hors d’oeuvres and Gatorade baths! The video was shot on a beautiful, mountainous beach in LA and was directed by “Stillness Is The Move” helmsmen Matthew Lessner, who can now add Local Natives to his increasingly impressive resume.

Gorilla Manor, which was given Pitchfork’s coveted Best New Music tag earlier this year, hit stores in February via Frenchkiss Records, and is already being hailed as one of 2010’s best records. Since then the band has been keeping busy with appearances at SXSW, Coachella and a huge (and hugely sold out) US tour with up-and-coming labelmates Suckers. Before appearing before one of those sell outs at Bowery Ballroom in New York City last Thursday (NYTimes Review!), the band stopped by Craig Ferguson to make their late night debut with “Airplanes.” A link to the clip is below, along with the band’s full touring itinerary, which includes stops at almost every big-ticket festival of the summer – Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Isle of Wight, Glastonbury, Roskilde, Pitchfork Festival, and about a half dozen others.

What the press is saying about Local Natives:

Best New Music: True, we tend to bow at novelty and innovation, but Gorilla Manor proves to be a refreshing reminder of the pleasures of synthesis.” – Pitchfork

“It’s a rare band that can use its chemistry as its own instrument. But the young, frightfully accomplished Local Natives are a rare L.A. band indeed.” – Los Angeles Times

“The camaraderie practically oozes out of the music of Local Natives, making Gorilla Manor my surprise album of the year.”Bob Boilen of NPR

“Local Natives create the kind of feeling – with a musicality so ambitious and daring, but immediately satisfying – that you can only attain if you’re head over heels with the very thought of maximizing all that’s in your heart”Daytrotter

“Poetic songs, which billow, churn and explode into light.” NME
