Local Natives‘ popularity continues to grow and grow and the LA band is now offering stems of their songs to other musicians and DJs who admire their work can take a shot at remixing songs from their debut album, include fellow locals Fool’s Gold, which just made their Hollywood Bowl debut as part of KCRW’s World Festival.
The Suckers remix of “Wide Eyes” seems to be the station favorite at the moment and its easy to see why — it deconstructs the band’s gorgeous harmonies and recreates the song with some heavy, groovy backbeats, and lots of other flourishes that are best heard through headphones. It still sounds Wide Eyed – and thoroughly enjoyable. Brooklyn-based Suckers and Local Natives are tour and labelmates and the mutual respect can be heard in this remix.
