Local Natives Share New Songs ‘Desert Snow’ and ‘Hourglass’

    Local Natives have returned with two new songs: ‘Desert Snow’ and ‘Hourglass’. They mark the Los Angeles band’s first original material since 2020’s Sour Lemon EP. The double-A single arrives alongside the announcement of their first tour in 3 years, which kicks off July 29 at Osheaga Music & Arts Festival. Check out the tracks and find the full list of dates below.

    “After the heartbreak and insanity of the past few years, when we finally got together to make music again, these songs reconnected and reignited us,” Local Natives commented in a statement. Of ‘Hourglass’, they added:

    It explores the difficulty of feeling divided and isolated from the people we love while knowing the time we have with them is finite, and contains some of our favorite LN lyrics:

    What I know now I didn’t then /
    I know you wish I could forget
    We’re drawing lines in the sand /
    inside an hourglass

    This music got us through some really difficult times and reminded us how much joy we get out of playing music together. We couldn’t be more excited to share these songs and play them live on our first tour in two years!

    Last year, Local Natives shared a covers EP featuring their take on songs by Roxy Music, Gerry Rafferty, Michael McDonald, and 10cc.
