California’s Local Natives have released a hypnotic new single, “Statues in the Garden (Arras),” accompanied by an equally hypnotic animated video for the track. It follows the release of Violet Street (Remixes) from earlier this year.
The sprawling psychedelic song has some of the band’s best guitar work yet. As mesmerizing as its visual component, the track has enchanting vocals and immersive instrumentals that portray just how dedicated Local Natives are. The lyrics are vague and otherworldly: “I can’t slow down / Not for a moment / Even if I wanted to.”
