The Lumineers are good at what they do. Plain and simple. This Denver based quartet produces some of the best and most memorable melodies you’ll hear from the folk genre today, and their track “Ho Hey” doesn’t disappoint one bit.
This song contains a little bit of everything, and it is all done very well. The lyrics themselves are decently simple, but are backed-up by surprising soul and honesty. With everything from the gang vocals shouting out their “ho’s” and “hey’s” throughout the song, to the insanely catchy chorus, it all adds together to make near folk-pop perfection that you’re guaranteed to be singing to yourself all day.
