Genre: Indie Folk
Lyrics by: Wesley Schultz, Jeremy Fraites
Release Date: June 4, 2012
The Lumineers is Denver folk rock band that released its debut album in April, 2012. As is usual, the first record recieved the name of the band and included 11 tracks.
The Lumineers got a special attention soon thanks to their particular style and fresh lyrics. The album reached the number 8 on the Billboard 200 Chart.
But the amazing thing is that one of their singles, the first ones, Ho Hey, continues in the top 10 of the USA Singles Chart durint this 2013. The song has been ranked at #3 on U.S. Singles Top 40. For that reason, Ho Hey has became in their first single to reach Platinum certified.
The charming song has also been used to promote the multi nominated film “Silver Linings Playbook” starring Jennifer Lawrence in UK.
The good news for this recent band don’t stop here. At the end of last year Rolling Stone ranked it as the best 26th song of 2012.
Other songs that have been listed without the same success are “Stubbotn Love” and “Flapper Girl”.
Their music and lyrics reflect the simplicity of their lives, at least, during the time their members had to fight to achieve a position into the music industry.
The band will do their first performance at Grammy Awards where are nominated for Best New Artist and Best American Album. The ceremony will take place next February 10, 2013.
Until March, 2013, they have sold all tickets for their performances around the United State, UK, Germany and Australia. Amazing!
