World News

By Local Natives

'World News' from Los Angeles' Local Natives, is a relentless rumble of booming drumbeats, contrasted against lilting vocals that rise to sudden, wailing peaks, and fleshed out with flickers of guitar that don't lure the listener's attention away from the main event: the contrast between the marching drums and the fluid vocals. There's also a theatrical flourish to the lyrics, which suggests Local Natives could pen something pretty weighty in the near future.

Clunking, quirky and handclap-friendly indie-rock, 'World News' is a deceptively simple track that manages to hammer mercilessly, and lament at the same time without sounding messy.
