The Lumineers, Langhorne Slim
Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineershave found their sound when the world needs it most: an amalgam of heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk.
The roots revival of the last few years has primed listeners for a new generation of rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve music—the kind that nods to tradition while setting off into uncharted territory. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics – all displayed on their self-titled debut album, available now via Dualtone Records.
They play Americana-inflected barnburners in the vein of the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, and slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations of Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams. Prepare to be drawn in by the live Lumineers experience—a coming-together in musical solidarity against isolation, adversity, and despair.
