Lord Huron – The Stranger

Lord Huron, The Stranger

Lord Huron’s The Stranger now graces every playlist I have put together, ever. From their second release, Mighty EP, this song seems like it runs endlessly and effortlessly. The perfect summer tune; the lyrics scroll through the tropical, acoustic backdrop and revel in their simplicity. You don’t care to realize that the lyrics are on repeat for most of the track [“Of all of the strangers you’re the strangest that I’ve seen”]. The change of pace near the end leaves us with an eerie truth about the stranger we have all struggled to know and understand [“Now that I’ve seen you face, I am haunted by the letters of your name”]. Put some headphones on and zone out for a bit with Lord Huron, you’ll thank me later.
