Even if you wanted to run away from the poppy sensibilities of the Local Natives circa 2010, you probably couldn’t have. In constant rotation at coffee shops everywhere, the LA band’s sound embodied all the lushness of that era’s indie rock: pop aesthetics, acoustic textures, layered vocals and harmonies, clever guitar licks and danceability.
Alongside acts like Yeasayer, Broken Bells and Fleet Foxes, Local Natives helped usher in a new era for the genre, which in turn, cemented the band’s longevity. Luckily, it’s headed to San Antonio in support of some long-awaited new music.
$28.50-$46, Thu June 13, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
