The Lumineers seemingly dropped off the face of the Earth after their hit “Ho Hey” in 2012, and almost four years later they are releasing a new album Apr. 8 “Cleopatra”. The song still possess the hollow, raw sound similar to “Ho Hey” but with a lot more airy vocals from lead singer Wesley Schultz. This change works for the band, the subtle tweak just enough to make an impact without taking away Schultz’s signature falsetto. The strong presence of piano instrumentals balances out the softer voice style much like the acoustic guitar balanced out the heavier vocals in their last album. This in mind the song receives a 3.75 out of 5 with huge props to their smooth transition but the track was nothing to write home about other than the fact the band is finally dropping a new album this spring.
