Please play this song on the radio

We wrote this song, it's not too short, not too long
It's got back-up vocals in just the right places (in just the right places)
It's got a few oohs and ahhs (oooh aaah)
And it takes a little pause
Just before I sing the F word

Please play this song on the radio

Almost every line is sung on time
Almost every verse ends in a rhyme
The only problem we had was writing enough words
(oooh aaah)
But that's okay, because the chorus is
Coming up again now

Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio

Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio (please play this song)
Please play this song on the radio (please play this song)

So yesterday I sent some of our new tunes off to Indie 103 check 1 2 to see if they might be interested in putting 1, 2 or 10 of our tunes up on their local show Check 1 2 hosted by Mark Shovel. Super curious to see what they think about Local Natives? We play shows a lot with many of the bands that are on the show and I think they just might like us. I took some time and spit a little Hammbone taste into the packaging of the disc using some arts and krafts know how, paired with some old Garbage Pale Kids cards and Local Natives artwork. I almost didn't want to send it out and keep it instead:) Included was a personal letter from me and a promo copy of our unreleased album. Pics below.

Now we play the waiting game. For those of you who don't know Check 1 2 airs every Sunday night 6pm-8pm. If your feelin like a fan PLEASE request 'Airplanes' 1 877 900 1031 or visit http://www.indie1031.fm/check_one.._two.php and on the right hand side is a link to request online. This really does help and Ill come and plant a juicy one on your cheek if you let me know you requested us. Wish us luck!

Andy
