The Lumineers

The singles dropped for ‘Cleopatra’ (‘Ophelia’, ‘Cleopatra’) immediately caught my attention. The were easy going, catchy country pop songs, and I guess I’m just a lover of that type of Americana Folk Rock.  The album’s title track describes the woes of a taxi driver vocalist Wesley Schultz actually met in real life , and the songs are full of characters with their own backstories. It show’s a new depth to the songwriting skills of the band, and a new understanding of how to craft an interesting story within them. I also particularly enjoy Schultz’s vocal delivery throughout, from the anthem calls of ‘Cleopatra’ and ‘Angela’, to the gentler yearnings of ‘Sick In The Head’ and ‘White Lies’ (White Lies is only available on the bonus deluxe version, which I suggest you go for). Long gone is Ho-Hey of 2012, this is the new and improved Lumineers, and my god you’re gonna like ’em

The latest video from The Lumineers album Cleopatra is the wonderful “Sleep On The Floor”.

Tom Petty is headlining one of the British summertime shows this July. Following great trips over the past few years to The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and The Who we’re thrilled to be heading back to one of the great summer events.

These festivals are brilliantly organised and we would highly recommend upgrading to Gold or Diamond VIP packages.

These gives you access to the VIP summer garden area which offers a selection of exclusive bars, restaurants, comfy seating (and toilets without long queues :-))

Diamond VIP includes access to a small pit right in the very front of the main stage.

Gold VIP includes access to a secondary pit just behind the Diamond section

The LUMINEERS – ” Angela “

The Lumineers, like Mumford And Sons, have picked up a pretty bad reputation over the years as tweed-wearing, banjo-wielding hipsters with little to no musical depth. “Angela,” I think, helps to dispel such a misconception. The acoustic ballad, from the album Cleopatra, is a gobsmackingly beautiful piece of songwriting from the Denver band. The emotional video is worth a watch, too, acting as a prequel-of-sorts to their previous visual for “Cleopatra.”
