Anyone can tell you who's already made it, but HuffPost Arts & Culture's On Our Radar series is here to tell you who's about to blow up -- and, in some cases, go pop.

The Local Natives emerged on the indie rock scene in 2010 with their debut record "Gorilla Manor," a 12-song LP loaded with chaotic drum beats, falsetto harmonies and textured guitar riffs that seemed to scream west coast sunshine. Now the Los Angeles-bred quartet is onto their second album, "Hummingbird," a sophomoric effort dripping with the same playful musicality, albeit shrouded in a bit more shadow that its predecessor. Following the album's release last week, the tour has kicked off with shows in California and New York, interrupted by a layover at Jimmy Fallon's Late Night stage. As expected, the rave reviews keep on coming.

This week we had a chance to chat with the band's singer-keyboardist, Kelcey Ayer. »
