Featured Artist: Local Natives

Described as the West Coast’s Grizzly Bear, this bonded bunch of (mostly) SoCal locals are definitely worthy of your attention. While most bands get enough of each other on the road, the four group members decided to move in together because it made making music easier. Their time together has paid off with their debut album Gorilla Manor, named after their humble abode. While “Warning Signs” is the first single off the album, “Sun Hands” is by far my favorite track, reminding me of Grizzly Bear’s “Ready, Able.”
