The Lumineers – Ho Hey Review
The Lumineers is a folk-rock band, comprising of three talented members. It is known for producing simple and heart-warming songs. From their self-titled CD comes the strong single ‘Ho Hey.’ The song is climbing up music charts. It has the chance to be declared the alternative rock song of the year.
Many people think the band sounds a lot more like 90’s alternative band Our Lady of Peace. It is not a bad comparison after all given Our Lady of Peace’s reputation as the forefront band of the so-called alternative movement back in the days.
The track begins with an organic mandolin paired with guitar strumming. A dose of cheery chants fill the background. Vocalist Wesley Schultz then breaks in accompanying the lyrics. Before the chorus, the beat picks up and guitar plunking gets faster with swirling sonics. The vocalist’s voice then turns upbeat and speedy from being plaintive.
The song cements the group’s reputation for being a simple sounding band. Listeners may find the track refreshing, prompting them to sit back and enjoy the Lumineers’ straightforward brand of music, which surely strikes right to the heart. Without any doubt, reviewers can easily agree that this song is among the best alternative tracks of this year.
