Latitude Review: Local Natives

Four years after making their festival debut at Latitude, Local Natives returned to Henham for a triumphant set on the Obelisk Arena stage.
Back in 2009 the group played the Sunrise Arena - this year they were up on the main stage as a lead-in act to Grizzly Bear and headliners Foals and told the crowd they viewed Latitude as 'the best festival in the world'.
The Californian indie rockers, now a firmly-established festival act, filled last night's set predominantly with tracks from debut album Gorilla Manor, released in 2009, and this year's follow-up Hummingbird.
Adding in a cover of Warning Sign by Talking Heads, the band's close vocal harmonies from Taylor Rice, Kelcey Ayer and Ryan Hahn were perfect for an early evening slot that drew a sizable crowd to the arena.
The performance was one of several across the weekend that was signed from the stage and the band dedicated a track to the hard-working signer who received a huge round of applause, almost as big as the one that greeted the close of the band's final track.
Local Natives could well be back to top the bill in years to come.
