Freshmen 5 Summer 2010: Local Natives

  by slorocco.

These West Coast boys gained a great deal of attention with the release of their debut LP Gorilla Manor on label Frenchkiss in February. With comparisons to other indie groups like Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear, Local Natives are undoubtedly in good company, proving that they can hold their own with intricate harmonies and outstanding Talking Heads covers. They bring their single “Airplanes” to mtvU’s Freshmen Five.
