LORD HURON, We Went Wild (from Into the Sun single, 2010)
As the season begins to transition over here in NY, I found myself looking for a song that would make the feeling of summer linger just a tad longer, but also let the freshness of fall enter in. LA-based newcomers Lord Huron pretty much nail it. We Went Wild incorporates a fun tropicalia sound into an otherwise steady pop tune. The vocal harmonies and hushed arrangements also bring to mind the classic folk of Simon & Garfunkel. Check out more songs on their bandcamp page—they’re as soothing as this gem.
The band is currently working on an EP (tentatively titled Mighty) that should be out in the coming months.
Available for purchase at Lord Huron’s bandcamp page.
