Just last month, Local Natives announced their upcoming Violet Street album and on Thursday (April 11), dropped the third single from the project. 

"Tap Dancer" comes with an artistic music video featuring contemporary choreographer Micaela Taylor. She bends and flows in a satin red dress, interpreting the lyrics and the trippy, waterfall-esque melody. "Everything was easier before/Take me back/Before I knew of artificial roses," the outro muses.

The group previously released ‘Café Amarillo’ and ‘When Am I Gonna Lose You?’ off the new record. Violet Street is a follow-up to 2016’s Sunlit Youth, and is due out on April 26 via Loma Vista Recordings. Watch the "Tap Dancer" video below.
