Roots to Grooves – Local Natives

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

On this episode Jay and Jesse discuss the career and creative approaches of American indie rock band “Local Natives”.

“Local Natives” are a 5 piece originally from Orange Country, now based in Los Angeles.

The group originally got together in high school, doing the traditional thing of rehearsing in their parents garage, and it was early on that they made a decision to harmonize all their vocals in a similar vein to their inspirations, “The Beach Boys” and “Crosby Stills and Nash”.

After some members graduated college, and some dropped out, they decided to move together to a house in Los Angeles and began writing and recording their debut album “Gorilla Manor”.
