LOCAL NATIVES – ” Music From The Pen Gala 1983 ” Covers

Posted: January 30, 2022 in MUSIC

Los Angeles band Local Natives have shared a brand new covers EP called ‘Music From The Pen Gala 1983’ 

The project, which was recorded for the Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell-starring Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door, hears the indie rock band cover songs by Roxy Music, Michael McDonald, 10cc, and Gerry Rafferty.

In addition to providing music for the show, Local Natives – comprising Taylor Rice, Kelcey Ayer, Ryan Hahn, Matt Frazier and Nik Ewing – also star as a cover band in an episode where Rudd and Ferrell attend the titular Pen Gala. In character, the band performs their cover songs to a dolled-up audience.

Local Natives released their last full-length album in 2019 with ‘Violet Street’. Last year, they followed it up with EP ‘Sour Lemon’ which included the Sharon Van Etten collaboration ‘Lemon’.

In July, the band remixed Manchester Orchestra’s ‘Bed Head’, turning the driving rock song on its head by adding sun-kissed pop rhythms to it.
