Following the release of magnificent debut LP Lonesome Dreams back in February and a sold out Scala show in May, Lord Huron offer up a new single from the record She Lit A Fire.
One of the most direct songs on the album, She Lit A Fire, is a mellow rapture of campfire folk, complete with ethereal vocals, simple guitar hooks and shuffling snare brushes galore.
Led by Michigan-born songwriting prodigy and general creative genius Ben Schneider, their sound - a joyous collision of Appalachian percussion, rustic guitars and sumptuous harmonies lit up by lens-flare flashes of electronics - has won rave reviews from either side of the Atlantic.
Lonesome Dreams is a record inspired by the rust coloured canyons and characters of the Wild West (with the emphasis on wild), the record also encompasses a series of short films, intriguing artwork and a series of imagined novels by a fictional ageing wordsmith, the mysterious George Ranger Johnson. "I'm interested in creating a world with its own mythology," says main man Schneider.
After their string of UK shows in May quickly sold out and the band will return to play Green Man Festival this August and a couple of shows in Ireland:
Saturday 17 August - Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons, Wales
Sunday 18 August - Whelan's, Dublin, Ireland
Monday 19 August - Goat's Toe, Bangor
