Vocally and melodically, “When Am I Gonna Lose You” by Southern California band Local Natives projects a retro feel that conjures up the sound of 70’s and 80’s Pop/Rock when acts such as Pablo Cruise ruled Top 40 with hits that asked a similar question: instead of of “When Am I Gonna Lose You” it was “Whatcha Gonna Do” (1977). Both are long, too: 4:17 for “When Am I Gonna Lose You” and 4:19 for Pablo Cruise.
“When Am I Gonna Lose You” is currently Top 5 on Adult Alt radio and climbing into the top 25 on the Alternative chart.
Local Natives, a 5-man group, first registered on the music community’s radar 10-yeas ago at South By Southwest in Austin. They’ve released four studio albums.
Fans of the TV shows “House of Cards,” “24,” or”American Horror Story” may recognize actress Kate Mara who is featured in the video.
