A couple of years ago you probably never heard of The Lumineers, even when the band released their first single, "Ho Hey," off their self-titled debut album, "The Lumineers," in 2012 they were still relatively unknown. The band quietly developed into popularity from "Ho Hey," you heard the song and thought, "Who is this?" And then carried on about your day. The single started to creep further up the charts and the group began to perform sold-out shows due to the simplicity and cinematic style of their songs.
The Lumineers are categorized as a "folk" band which may be the core of their spirit but it would be unfair to describe them solely as such because their range is limitless. The Denver, Colorado group produce soft, melodic songs that easily cross over into various genres due to their high energy and powerful combination of booming instruments.
Now, The Lumineers musical scope has spread out to the land of zombies. The band's new single, "Visions of China," is an original song off the bonus disc of forthcoming soundtrack, "Songs of Survival Vol.2," from AMC TV series, "The Walking Dead's," fourth season. The track has a haunting Radiohead-esque feel with lead singer, Wesley Schutlz's, distressing vocals. So, if watching a lot of flesh-eating zombie's isn't your cup of tea, you can at least enjoy the series' soundtrack.
"The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season" is set for official release Aug. 26. "Songs of Survival Vol.2" also includes contributions from Colbie Caillat, alt-J, KONGOS, and Crooked Fingers, reports Spin. Check out "Visions of China" above.
