My whole life has revolved around music. My mother was a singer and as a kid I gravitated towards R&B and pop. Since then, my musical tastes and appreciation has only grown and expanded. It can be a little random at times; one minute I’ll be listening to an Alexisonfire song, then the next I’ll switch over to music you’d hear in a Parisian café. In the end though it seems that indie/folk music is the closest to my heart. When I discovered Lord Huron, it dawned on me how true this was. I’ve heard their single ‘Time to Run” on the radio dozens of times and I never got tired of it, so naturally I started listening to their other songs. Already, Lord Huron is becoming a favourite of mine. Their music has all the elements of new and old folk that I love: the sweet acoustic guitar, lively and powerful drums and beautiful harmonies.
Each song takes you on a personal journey – almost like you’re living the song’s story. You visualize being amongst the wilderness or in the tropics. It’s exciting when music can put you in an almost euphoric state simply with the intricacy and power behind both the music and lyrics. I can’t imagine anything else but an amazing performance by Lord Huron, so if you’re attending the Arts & Crafts Field Trip in Toronto on June 7th and 8th I’m sure you’re in for a treat. (The bill also includes Broken Social Scene, Half Moon Run, Interpol and The Kills so it’s bound to be a great weekend.)
Lord Huron’s debut album, Lonesome Dreams, is in stores now, so head over to your local music shop and pick up a copy. You won’t be disappointed. Don’t forget to like their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for all their news and updates.
