The Dear Hunter

Post by Jordan » Fri Oct 02, 2015 7:45 am

Anybody else here heard of these guys? Barely anyone knows about them and it blows my mind. One of my favorite bands of all-time, they are very theatrical and do some wicked concept albums. I'd say they are more so alternative progressive rock, but it's hard to define them as one genre because their sound varies so much from song to song.

It's really hard to pick a song to show as a sample because their music is best listened to and understood from front to back. But here's some of their gems:

All their music is worth checking out. They do a concept album called "The Color Spectrum", which has Black, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, White, and each color has it's own sound and mood to it. Black is very dark, Red has an angry/cynical feel to it, Orange is pretty bluesy, Yellow kinda reminds me of The Beatles, Green is very earthy acoustic stuff, Blue is very depressing obviously, Indigo is kind of electronic sounding, Violet is very theatrical, White is just...clear?

Then they also the Acts, there's Act I, II, and III, and IV just came out last month. They are a bit different, but still great shit!

I need more people to appreciate this band with me!

Hi Jordan! The Dear Hunter is my favorite band. Love them to death and hopefully seeing them soon. Rare seeing another fan!

Edit: Seeing them on Friday. Pretty pumped.
