Early in October, Lord Huron dropped into the Ogden Theater to what a appaeared to be a capacity crowd. We were there to take photos but we need to say: please see this band. We were introduced to their work by way of the song, When The Night Is Over, off their 2018 release, Vide Noir. SPIN Magazine wrote of Vide Noir that, “Lord Huron had noirish inclinations and looming surf riffs before now—Trails’“Dead Man’s Hand,” for instance—but on Vide Noir they sharpen their teeth, shedding some of their charm.”
Ok, cool. Whatever they were before Vide Noir (On 2012’s full-length debut, Lonesome Dreams, Schneider painted himself as a stargazing cowboy poet; on 2015’s Strange Trails he ventured to the darker territory of the jilted lover’s heart. In the latest installment, Vide Noir, our solitary traveler reappears in his grimmest mood yet, a suicidal absinthe fugue even this band can’t entirely romanticize.” – SPIN) they’re captivating… and we’re in love.
Anyway, here’s the pictures we promised you. Enjoy.
