Classixx x Local Natives x Francesca

Classixx followed up their latest "Weekends" with another collaborative track with Local Natives entitled "Francesca."  As Michael David & Tyler Blake of Classixx explain it "Francesca is a song that we've always wanted to make. Bright poly synths, big resonant drums and an anthemic vocal stack. When Kelcey first sang the verse and chorus melodies softly at a piano, it felt like our opportunity to go for it. It took us a while to finish Francesca. The framework came together quickly but we really took our time with every sound and section. I'm not sure if comes across as a carefully crafted production, but I do feel triumphant when I hear it because it really sounds like the song we always imagined."  This single is the second from a 2 song EP that's available now.  Read more about it at The Line of Best Fit.

Classixx & Local Natives x Weekends

Premiered by Pitchfork, "Weekends" is a collaboration between LA's Classixx & Local Natives.  Another collaborative single will come shortly.  

“These two songs were made as a collaboration in the true sense of the word,” Classixx said in a statement. “We met the Local Natives guys at a wedding in Mexico and immediately connected. They’re such a vibrant live band and it was important to us that their musicianship and vocal harmony came through. The tunes were a group effort and it was a privilege to work on them together, it felt like being a part of a small community.”

Peel x Rom-Com Remixes

On November 13, 2020, Peel (Sean Cimino and Isom Innis) reveal two new remixes and a live version of “Rom-Com” -- the lead single off their self-titled EP which was released last month via Innovative Leisure. James McAlister’s (producer, composer and frequent Sufjan Stevens collaborator) ambient take slowly unfolds and shape shifts in contrast to Local Natives bassist Nik Ewing’s (aka Chewing) recreation which punctuates Peel’s melodic synths with metallic harsh electronics. The live version of the single was recorded in SoCal’s Susan Street Studios during Peel’s Broadcast 006 performance.
