Have y’all heard of The Lumineers? I actually hadn’t heard of them. I saw their video for Ho Hey and then proceeded to watch it several more times because I LOVE the song. It’s catchy yo! If you are of the Ryan Adams-ish type of Alt Country you should definitely take a listen. Before I let you check out the video, here’s a little background on the the band if you are unfamiliar…via CMT.com:
The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, deliver an acoustic-based Americana sound that touches a lot of stylistic bases, from folk to gospel to heartland rock and the narrative end of country, all with interesting rhythmic twists and turns. The band had its beginnings in 2002 when Jeremiah Fraites lost his 19-year-old brother Josh to a drug overdose. Fraites and his brother’s best friend, Wesley Schultz, turned to music to deal with the sorrow of it, and were soon writing songs and gigging together in the New York area as a duo. After relocating to Denver, the pair met classically trained multi-instrumentalist Neyla Pekarek after placing a Craigslist ad for a cellist, and things clicked for the trio, who began playing open mikes at the Meadowlark, a basement club where local songwriters gathered, developing a fresh sound that defies tight classification, although front porch Americana might cover it
Without further ado, here’s the video…and make sure you check out Neyla’s dress, I could not love it more!
See what I mean?! Catchy, yes? Ok, back to the fashion aspect and Neyla’s dress–VERY CUTE! Here’s how I’d do it up Langston’s style.
What do you think? Are you a new fan of The Lumineers like I am? And how bout that dress? And I gotta say, those boots could not match that dress more perfectly if I do say so myself!
