Normally weekends are pretty worthless for new music. Especially new music that’s good. But when The Strokes and Local Natives both released new singles last night, well — the norm was thrown on its head.
“You & I” is the third single released from Local Natives’ upcoming album Hummingbird (available January 29, 2013), following up the earlier “Breakers” and “Heavy Feet.”
As the opening track to the album, “You & I” has a tropical feel to it. With crooning vocals layered on top, it seems like a slightly weird way to set the tone for an album — I’d rather expect this to be best suited as a closing track.
Either way, it’s nice to hear new music from these lads, especially because they’ve been consistently good as of late.
