After the release of only their second studio album, we can only wonder... how could The Lumineers get any better?
I am pleasantly surprised and pleased to see a band with such strong love for music do so well with a follow up album. It seems to be hardest for bands to really come out on top with the release of a second album or as some would say, "their sophomore album". The Lumineers keep to what they know best and end up on top, but it does not seem to phase them (in a good way). At the number 1 spot or if they weren't even recognized, all members of the band seem to not let the fame get to them and truly do it for the love of music. I am excited to see what the future holds for the Colorado based band.
One song teaser and I have to wait until October for the whole album?! Such a tease, Young The Giant. But a good tease.
It has been some time since we have heard from the California based band since the release of their 3rd album, Mind Of Matter, in 2014. The boys are back with a new song which, I am assuming, is off of their soon-to-be 4th studio album Home Of The Strange which is set to release in August of this year. Amerika, the newly released single, shows just what the boys of Young The Giant can bring to the table and let me tell you, it is about time. Amerika shows sides of the band that we have heard before and sides that we have not. The beginning of the song starts slow and soft, with an almost Glass Animals type sound. With the use of new instruments, cords and sounds, the song leads the listener to believe that this up-coming album might be a little more.. worldly? Maybe with the use of other cultures sounds and styles? Only time will tell and by time I mean 4 long months. C'mon boys, release another song!
