I really like The Low Anthem. I saw them in concert a few years back, they were terrific, ethereal, just marvelous. This is one of the best songs released in the last couple of years. When we made our lists of the best songs in 2011 I just had not paid enough attention, this clearly belong in the top 5.
BBC said: “It sounds like Bob Dylan singing lead vocal for The Arcade Fire” (or something like that), and it really does! They also said: If the Low Anthem doesn’t release it as a single they’re mad.
