In 2012, there have been a lot of contenders for the title of the 'Bruce Springsteen-est Song of The Year'. So far, songs by Japandroids ("The House That Heaven Built"), The Killers ("Runaways") and even Keane ("On The Road") owe a great deal of debt to The Boss. Not bad for a year when Springsteen himself released an album.
Which leads me on nicely to Lord Huron. Originally started as a solo project by Michigan born Ben Schneider, the group have expanded into a five-piece in anticipation of their debut E.P for PIAS. The first track taken from the E.P, "Time to Run", is available as a free download, and is an upbeat piece of Springsteen-esque Americana, mixed with a psychedelic pop style that calls to mind the sunny haze of Cashier No.9.
"Time to Run" is taken from Lord Huron's debut E.P, which will be released on October 8th.
