It’s been three years since LOCAL NATIVES released their really satisfying album Hummingbird and we’ve been waiting for new material ever since. Now, the group surprised its fans with a new song called Past Lives. They unveiled it at a surprising gig in Los Angeles last night and it might be the first teaser of a new studio album. Here’s what the band says about the song in a press statement:
The world is not static, it’s made new over and over again. But we tend to live the same patterns in a loop, loving the same way, wrestling the same demons, the same dynamics playing out around us again and again. Untangling every moment and decision that led us to where we are now can make fate feel concrete, inescapable. But our world is not fixed, it’s constantly reemerging, and we can change it into whatever we want.
