Father John Misty. Kendrick Lamar. Kanye West. My Morning Jacket. I guess I am looking forward to a lot of new albums in 2015, eh? However, Lord Huron‘s sophomore opus qualifies as the album I’m most ready for. I was obsessed with the near perfect EPs (Mighty, Into The Sun, Time To Run) and exquisite road-ready debut Lonesome Dreams. LH’s raucous and rain-fought appearance at MoPop Festival was the final exhibit that proves the folk rock outfit’s upward trajectory.
Lord Huron recently teased their next album Strange Trails with nostalgic artwork for each song title and an eerie trailer cut to look like motion pictures of the 1940s-1950s. New single “The Night We Met” sonicly seems like an appropriate addition to the LA by way of Michigan product’s stellar growing catalog with emotive guitar and vocal effects. The simple but pained refrain serves the track’s reflective nature and feels even more hurt coming from lead singer Ben Schneider’s harrowing vocals. The narrator’s longing for a past love is particularly exposed in the lines: “I had all and then most of you, some, and now none of you/take me back to the night we met”.
