Nero On The Highway
Local Natives create a theatric space of audio crescendoes and lyrical pomp, with "Paradise" — a glowing example of the new age indie prog-rock sound.
"Paradise" is a track removed from time, it's a track that would feel at home in the deep halls of a Roman amphitheater and the deep dark neon-lit streets of your local dive bar street. The track is a beaming narrative joy that has an honest punch to its lyricism that goes straight for the heart, leaves a wound, and burns the soul.
Local Natives has created a track that is both philosophical and inviting, and that, is a beautiful difficult thing to succeed at.
