In the summer of 2021, the American folk rock giants The Lumineers are finally coming to Finland! Hailing from Colorado, The Lumineers gained worldwide popularity after their mega hit Ho Hey was released in 2012. This paved the way for the revival of indie folk and Americana, while also enabling the band to become one of the biggest names in the scene.
More recently The Lumineers' music has taken a darker and more daring turn, and their third album, III, which was released in September 2019, was preceded by a collection of short films that provided a ‘visual exploration' of the themes of the album. These cinematic renderings beautifully combined effortless melodies and skillful storytelling into multidimensional pieces of art that were perfected by the soulful voice of lead singer Wesley Schultz.
There is certainly a newfound intensity to The Lumineers, and we can hardly wait for the opportunity to absorb it all at Ilosaarirock this July. One thing's for sure: it's nailed on to be an awe-inspiring performance from a band full of charisma and musical talent, which will no doubt leave you yearning for more.
