How does one craft the sounds of a steady rush of falling off the edge of a cliff, along with the moment you go underwater holding your breath, feeling the waves rush over you, and still find that perfect peacefulness?

When I listen to the song “Breakers” by Local Natives, I feel like I am visually inside the ocean, I can hear the waves, and taste the sea. My whole entire world is underwater, I’m paralyzed until the music gently breaks… and then I breathe.

Local Natives’ sophomore album Hummingbird is out 1/29 via Frenchkiss, followed by a national US tour.
