The Lumineers: The Lumineers
Graeme Thomson, Uncut, December 2012
A RAMBUNCTIOUS BAND based, rather incongruously, in Colorado, The Lumineers create primal, pounding folk music which lead singer Wesley Schulz has likened to the sound of a "bunch of sailors on a ship, arm-in-arm". But it's not just that they make music worth hearing; in their lengthy slog to overnight success the group also have a tale worth telling.
