American indie folk band Lord Huron are pleasing fans around the world with their fourth studio album Long Lost.
Lord Huron aren’t exactly reinventing themselves on this album, they sort of did that already with their 2018 release, Vide Noir. Instead, Long Lost goes back to what they do best, except this time with an even larger sound.
Long Lost is grand; the album consists of an instrumental ensemble with peppy acoustics, eerie electric riffs, iridescent strings and lush vocal melodies. The titular single, “Long Lost,” is a perfect encapsulation of what the album is all about. The chorus is almost hypnotic with the rising crescendos and echoing “oh’s” immediately followed by low choral hums that belt “long lost.”
Listen to Long Lost below.
There is something very warm and homey about Lord Huron. They radiate soul and are effortlessly inviting, letting you get swept away in the music, eventually becoming long lost in a good way.
