L.A. indie rockers Local Natives are back with a new single titled “The Only Heirs.” The song is a collaboration with Nico Segal and is out now via Loma Vista Recordings. “The Only Heirs,” along with its predecessor, March’s, “I Saw You Close Your Eyes” will be released as a digital single and limited 7-inch through the band’s website.
Formed back in 2008, Local Natives are known to craft an eclectic and dramatic mixture of sounds, utilizing a lot of vocal harmonies and combining them with dreamlike melodies, resulting in very intricate, irresistible, chiming pop songs. However, there is obvious influence from Segal in “The Only Heirs.” Segal, formerly known as Donnie Trumpet, of Chance the Rapper associates The Social Experiment, adds an effortlessly cool layer to the chorus and the breathy backup vocals for an infectious, perfect summer jam.
The two new songs follow Local Natives’ recent full-length, Sunlit Youth. All of their upcoming tour dates can be found below, along with “The Only Heirs” and their 2009 Daytrotter performance available via the Paste Cloud.
