I’m a new fan of The Lumineers.
This is my first introduction to the band. They are funky. They are unique. They look like Dexy’s Midnight Runners and their sound is somewhat similar as well. I like it.
Check out the video for Ho Hey by The Lumineers.
Ho Hey – The Lumineers
There is something interest about this band. They are funky and organic and the sound is really cool. They put together a great melody for Ho Hey. It’s really great to listen to this kind of music once in a while. I love that country allows artists like this to really come in and make a small impact on the genre. There are so many sub genres that can mingle with country. It’s cool and it allows us to discover great songs like this one.
From what I can tell this is the first time The Lumineers have appeared on CMT. I think it’s a pretty cool introduction. The band has the bluegrass, organic sound going on, which on its own wouldn’t be new. But the band also has this quality of the band Dexy’s Midnight Runners, which is really interesting.
It’s also a great video. It’s cool how they have people everywhere in that old house singing along with the words of the song. That had to take some coordination to get everyone to move and sing at the same time. It looks like it was hard work, but still fun.
I’m sure The Lumineers will confuse some folks in country music. I’m sure there are other fans that will love this. Count me as one of the fans that really thinks this is a cool song and video.
I’d love to hear more from these guys. They are unique and unique is always good in my book.
