Local Natives Background
The Local Natives initially took shape in Orange
County where band members went to Tesoro High School. Following graduation from UCLA, Kelcey Ayer, Ryan Hahn and Taylor Rice
were joined by Matt Frazier and Andy Hamm. At the close of 2008, the group all moved into a house in Silver Lake, and they
immediately set to work on their first album.
From songwriting to artwork, all of the Local Natives approach their efforts
in a collaborative way. They named their first album, Gorilla Manor, after the house they all shared in Orange County. "It
was insanely messy and there were always friends over knocking around on guitars or our thrift store piano," Hahn said. "It
was an incredible experience and I'll never forget that time."
After playing nearly 10 shows at the 2009 SXSW festival
in Austin, Texas, the band began to draw attention from the music media. First impressions were favorable, drawing comparisons
to Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire and Fleet Foxes. In 2010, "Wide Eyes," emerged in Australia as part of an election campaign
ad. In 2011, they set out on a European tour, opening for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Also in 2011, Andy Hamm (bassist)
separated from the band. The Local Natives website revealed this announcement: "It is with extremely heavy hearts that we
announce that we have recently parted ways with our bassist Andy Hamm. Due to unresolved differences within the band, we strongly
feel that, in order to continue in a positive direction, this is the best course of action. We wish Andy the best and will
miss him deeply." Nik Ewing joined the band as their touring bassist and he officially became a Local Natives member in the
fall of 2013.
Their sophomore full-length album, Hummingbird, arrived in January 2013.
