In correspondence to Local Natives, this five piece band with the name of Local Hero delivers a similar buoyant pop vibe. The Aldgate is their first ever EP and it is only nineteen minutes long. These guys picked the appeals of Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, and Girls to make 5 melodious songs on this EP.
My obsession with tropical music and bittersweet lyrics instantly pulled me to "Press Box." Listen carefully to Mackay's mature voice. The remarkable thing about Local Hero is the truth behind "Barcelona Daydream," they "like the city but are too young." Members of the band are all under the age of twenty!
