Local Natives might as well be full-time residents at KEXP. With their sunny indie rock melodies and radiant vocal harmonies, the LA-based quintet have cranked out three amazing albums since 2009, including their joyous 2016 release, Sunlit Youth, which finds the band taking their expansive folk-pop in a more synth-oriented direction. Recently, Local Natives returned to the KEXP airwaves to perform a stripped down set in our new home gathering space, delighting the packed room with their hook-filled songs, new and old. Watch the full session here.
