It’s pretty crazy how fast bands can rise to fame. Just about a year ago we looked at a song called Ho Hey by The Lumineers. I had no idea what to make of the music. The song was certainly catchy and different and in the last year the band has gone on to have huge success. They’re a crossover act that has sold tons of records. It’s been amazing. I way underestimated how big these guys could get.
Now it’s time for single number two and it’s another good one.
Stubborn Love – The Lumineers
I don’t know if this song will be quite as big as the first. That’s incredibly difficult to replicate. The first single was kind of like a freight train. Once it started catching on you just to get out of the way and hop on and ride it as far as it would go. That doesn’t happen all the time.
The thing The Lumineers have going for them is these really catchy hooks. They use their voices to really create something different and unique. People have latched on to that and it could happen again with this single.
It seems like the song is about love, but the kind of love that makes you feel pain. Maybe things didn’t work out or maybe the person is going through a rough patch. They realize it’s just better to have gone through it and feel like you’re alive than to not feel anything at all.
This is a good song. It’s another solid step for a band that has really become something special in the last year.
