Long distance relationships, an increasingly common phenomenon enabled by advancements in technology, are some of the most difficult types of relationships to maintain. LA-based indie group Local Natives addresses the emotional struggles involving long distance relationships with the single “Coins” off of their recently released third studio album Sunlit Youth. Starting off with a soulful and stripped down guitar and piano duet punctuated by simple bass guitar, kick drum, and snare drum half notes, “Coins” is a passionate affair, accentuated by lead crooner Taylor Rice’s winding, emotive vocals. The song transitions from a classic singer/songwriter feel to a more heavily electronic version of the group’s signature full-band indie rock sound that has propelled them to success in the past. “Coins” is an instrumentally rudimentary track, focusing primarily on Rice’s vocals, both melodically and complexity-wise.
