The Lumineers harmonize folk with rock on their self-titled debut album. Choosing to combine a music style that represents the community with a focus on guitar and drums is a blend that works for them. Lead single, “Ho Hey,” starts off slow, but increases in tempo. This makes the song more fun and upbeat because the increase in tempo effects the energy level of the listener. Although some songs, such as “Classy Girls,” have a country feel to them, anyone can enjoy this album due to The Lumineers’ unique style. Because “Flapper Girl,” contains such catchy and easy to memorize lyrics, you cannot help but sing along with them. The best part about ‘The Lumineers’ album, though, is that the lyrics have the equivalence of love stories.
