Heavy Feet - Local Natives

This is a song I came across on Soundcloud:

Let me give you an overview. There's lots of drums- imagine military snare drums, indie chord progressions and the most beautiful vocals ever.
The lead vocal has a quality close to heavenly - very hard to describe, it sounds like it should be husky yet has a softness that could lull you away on a dream cloud.
Then there's the backing vocals which seem at some point to come in line with the lead vocals, but with the slurring and slight suspension every now and then, it creates a dissonance that adds to the emotional pull within the song.

Just listen. I promise you won't be disappointed.

This song is from Local Natives' EP 'Hummingbird' which is out on the 28th of January

Remember, all it takes is a listen.
