Lord Huron - "Time to Run"

A little more than a week ago, Lord Huron announced the upcoming release of their debut full length Lonesome Dreams with a spiffy cinematic trailer that featured new song "Time to Run". Now you can listen to the whole song and well, it's a thing of beauty.  After a sparse, chime-laden intro, the track picks up pace and becomes a veritable sonic sunburst - bright, sunny melodies rolling on with undeniable catchiness. Lord Huron's world music influence is still there, although tapered back a little and not as blatant. 

Lord Huron continues avoiding things like standard song lengths and normal songwriting conventions and the result is something special as the track's breakneck pace screeches to a halt midway through for the reintroduction of the track's melodic vibraphone intro. "Time to Run" certainly makes you excited for the rest of Lonesome Dreams. Here's hoping we don't have to wait too long to see what else Lord Huron has up their sleeves.
