Ophelia

I can listen to this song over and over again. Scratch that–I actually have listened to this song on repeat for a few weeks now.

Similar to that of Mumford & Sons, I believe that the music The Lumineers produce is good for the heart and soul. I also appreciate that they incorporate literary references in their songs as well, whether it’s titling a song after Shakespearean character or quoting Elie Wiesel (“the opposite of love is indifference”).

This song in particular references Ophelia, a woman who believed herself to be in love with the oh so destructible Hamlet, with the line “Heaven help the fool who falls in love.”

I cannot wait to see what other songs The Lumineers have on their new album. And of course, there will be a few tears shed as I give it a listen.
