Following yesterday’s release of Café Amarillo, Local Natives have today announced their new album Violet Street out April 26th

To celebrate, the band have revealed a second new lush, expansive song: When Am I Gonna Lose You?. Actress and style icon Kate Mara gives a chilling, melancholic performance in the video that evokes classic LA films such as David Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’ and Mike Nichols’ ‘The Graduate’. The video was shot in and around the Hollywood Hills in February 2019. It is directed by Van Alpert (Post Malone) and features visuals by Public-Library (Drake, Mac Miller, Nike)…

The question at the heart of Violet Street that threads together Café Amarillo, When Am I Gonna Lose You? and the other eight original tracks is, ‘With all of the chaos in the world, where do you find your shelter?’

“I got married last year,” says Taylor Rice (vocals, guitar). “I found myself in an incredible relationship that was great on so many levels, but I always felt like it was going to go away, fall apart, and crumble. This song is me diving into murky emotions of anxiety and doubt in the middle of love and joy”

The classic studio setting is juxtaposed on Violet Street with modern production and visuals to form a timeless album. The band’s signature soaring 3-part harmonies are augmented by loops of tape, physically spliced and transformed by hand. The result of experimenting in the studio with producer Shawn Everett [Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs] is a band renewed
