Local Natives Kelcey Ayer and Nik Ewing have been thinking a lot about how to balance darkness and light, art and activism.  Listen as Kelcey describes how Fleetwood Mac’s “Sara” is a “sad song that makes you feel good,” and why he needs those kind of songs in his life. Then Nik Ewing explores why he’s come to appreciate  Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” in the past year, and how that song inspires him and others in the band to think expansively about their roles as artists.
