Lord Huron’s New Video And Tour

LH

Lord Huron

Lord Huron sent me an email to announce the release of their new album ‘Strange Trails’ on April 7th and at the same time there was a link for their recently released music video for ‘Fool for Love’, one of the tracks of the new one. I like them, I have seen this band a few times live as I have been following them since their beginnings, and they seem to continue in this same direction, according a lot of attention to adventure and details and this video is no exception.

Not only the song is a delicate pop-folk gem, with a catchy chorus that will make you tap your foot along, but a mystery floats above the pastoral melody tainted of exotic and Africanized rhythms – if anyone would do a mashup with one of these Paul Simon’s songs off The Rhythms of the Saints’, I would not be surprised, and I would propose the Coast…. Iman gave a A- to the whole album so I guess he likes Lord Huron too!

But the video is another pleasure, a sort of Eastern Western in a bar with some gang violence breaking for unknown reasons, some slow-motion, and even a total stop in action before the song starts again and the fool adventurer runs away for his life.

‘I’m leaving this place behind, and I’m heading out on the road tonight,’ sings frontman Ben Schneider, ‘I’m off for the hinterlands, way up north where the tall trees stand/Before I commence my ride, I’m askin’ Lily to be my bride, and the whole thing works like a mini movie… but don’t miss to call the phone number you will see at 4:34, below the ‘Feeling Lost’ sign, it’s like an adventure game over the phone!
