Local Natives...I Want You Back

So, friends, I'm sure many of you are dying to know what I plan to do on my birthday at the end of this month. I know that's what I'd be wondering if I were you. Well, I'll be in Los Angeles, spending an evening with the Local Natives, attending their homecoming show at the most magnificent Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The @LOCALNATIVES are a band I've been in love with ever since I heard their music for the first time in the form of Airplanes.

It's a song about losing a loved one before you're ready to see them go. It can take on a variety of meanings, depending on the listener, but in this instance, it's about losing a Grandfather who was both a good friend and a great role model- a feeling I can most definitely relate to.

It wasn't until I heard their song, World News, that I knew this was a band I was destined to fall in love with. Everything about this song makes me bob my head and smile. I have to restrain myself from singing along at the top of my lungs- a battle I know I'll lose when I see these guys in person.

The last song I want you to hear is their song Eyes Wide, which is a remix done by @foolsgoldrecs, featuring rapper Ken Kaniff Aristotle. It's a vastly different take on the original, Wide Eyes, and the artists couldn't be any more different, but this song amazes me in that it never feels out of place.
