As Local Natives continue to support their latest album Sunlit Youth, the California outfit has shared a new video for "Dark Days."

The clip includes footage from the recording of the album as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the band's various escapades, both in America and abroad, in the days leading up to the album's release last September.

"'Dark Days’ is a bit of a misleading name,” the band said regarding the video. “It’s a nostalgic song about high school first loves and all the intensity and tension surrounding them, mixed with a little dose of religious guilt. Growing up in Southern California, we didn’t have many days without sun. ‘Dark Days’ brought to mind good memories of swimming on rainy days and sneaking out to your girlfriend’s house.”

They added: "Not really sure why Taylor was naked…”
