It's no secret that indie music has officially outgrown its siloed and off-the-grid status. The genre has trickled into the mainstream and swelled to massive proportions. Indie rockers Local Natives, with all their popularity and acclaim, are at the heart of this transition.

Just look at their 2019 tour and the show it includes in Dallas tonight at the House of Blues. Over the next four months, Local Natives are playing all over the world to many sold-out crowds. But there's no reason to hold this against them. Beautiful three-part choral harmonies and casual rock vibes have remained the band's staples over the last nine years, helping them become recognized and successful on a grand scale.

If you aren't familiar with Local Natives, here's a sampling of what you've missed.

Songs like "Wide Eyes," with a pitter-pattering tempo and soft falsetto, make for easy listening on even the most stressful of days.

Then there's the sleek and confident 2016 single "Dark Days," built on watercolor guitar riffs and spacey verses that feel so light they could be whispered.

"When Am I Gonna Lose You," a single off their newest album Violet Street, gets right to the point with stacked harmonies and a steady beat that leads the way.

With such a solid catalog as theirs, Local Natives are expected to play one helluva set tonight. Here's hoping they make the indie fans such as myself, who have been around since Gorilla Manor (their debut album of self-funded recordings), proud.
