Let the Lumineers illuminate!
My sister and I were watching MYX last night and, in contrast to what they say about MTV these days, it still shows music videos. We tuned in to their easy listening program and after three rather unremarkable songs from very popular singers/boy band, this video was played:
As the guitar intro was progressing, I straightened up. The sister commented that it sounded like me strumming, not that I’m any good with guitar. We had less than three minutes of pure enjoyment, then it was over. The sister noted its simplicity. Well, it is a folk song, nothing can explain better. It’s current music (something I can’t keep up with) and played on national television nonetheless.
