New Entry: Local Natives Air "Dark Days" Feat. Sylvan Esso

Los Angeles indie rock band Local Natives have aired a revamped version "Dark Days", feat. Sylvan Esso.

The song was originally released on their 2016 album ‘Sunlit Youth’. Get it here.

Speaking about his version, the band said: "'Dark Days' is a loose homage to growing up in Southern California: first loves, sneaking out, finding your our own way —all while trying to outrun religious guilt. The song has become integral to our band and our live shows. We last played it live on Kimmel a little over 2 months ago, which now feels like a distant memory from a bizarre alternate reality. Despite the looming anxiety of those final pre-quarantine days, that performance felt especially cathartic for us and was made all the more poignant by having Amelia on stage with us. She not only lent us her incredible voice but she wrote a beautiful new verse that taps into the nostalgia and the longing we all feel for a different time."

“It was a joy to dip into summertime with Local Natives- Dark Days is a beautiful illustration of being young, riding bikes, and trying to figure out how to love on and be vulnerable with someone. It was an honor to be asked to write a new verse and lend my voice to the story." - Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso."
