For the opening night of the Pantiero Music Festival, headliners Local Natives were scheduled to perform at 9PM and well before the concert tension was already building amongst the crowd, waiting in anticipation to see the five Californian wunderkinds perform their magic on stage…
The band fulfilled all of their fans’ wildest expectations! Performing under a hazy blue light, the no-front-man band proved how well they work together, always balancing stage presence and creating a perfect alchemy that transpired into their music and subtle vocal harmonies…

– So there’s no leader?
It’s very democratic… Some tensions sometimes but it’s good… Obviously we share similar tastes.
– You used to live in a house together?
We did. We all moved out of the house cause we move around so much, it doesn’t even make sense to have a house really.. We’re just never home. We’re homeless in a way… We’ve been on tour for a year, with little breaks every few months.
– And during your breaks do you write new songs?
The breaks aren’t long enough, they’re just maybe a few days off to hang out with our girlfriends or family, catch our breath…
– You still find time to write during the tour? Or will take a break after the tour to make new music?
When we write, we write very collaboratively and collectively and so we’ve had some time to write in an individual sense but we won’t really get to dive in the songs until we’re done touring. And we’ll probably tour till the end of this year and so after that we’ll take a big break so we can spend a lot of time to write.
– Are you tired of touring?
No!! Everything has been kind of a new experience for us and it’s been exciting to play for different audiences. We just played in Japan for the first time and it was just insane, it was really cool. I think it’s still exciting for us.
