BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE

sparkling sounds – The Lumineers

The Lumineers gig was the second concert I have attended this so far year and boy was it a huge consolation after a disappointing The Vaccines gig and missing out on the Kendrick Lemar’s gig in February, due to my ‘allergic reaction delay’ whilst on vacation.  The Lumineers are currently on tour promoting their self titled debut album and the words I have to describe their show in Zurich are artistic, organic, fruity, sweet, simple and beautifully melodic.photo

The small and quaint venue created a more intimate ambience, which was added further  by constant interaction and sing-alongs with the crowd. The short but sweet unplugged performance of “Darlene” in the middle of the crowd was also a novel idea. The music scene is experiencing a full blown folk revival and it’s bands like The Lumineers the are reintroducing the blissful reverie of acoustics and bluegrass. Guitar, bass, drums, cellos, fiddles, tambourines, keyboards, great voices, great sound, great show. Both their album (self-titled) and their show is worth checking out.

Cocktail of the night:- Beer (it was a ‘school night’)

Favourite performances:  “Hey Ho”, “Flowers in her Hair” and “Stubborn Love”.
