Today’s Indie: Hey Love / Miner

‘hold up your hands if you hear me / I’m callin’ honey / hold on’

In true San Francisco fashion it is a balmy 57 degree Monday in July. Sigh. Thankfully there is great music to warm us up: LA’s new Americana group, Miner, has the kind of sound that can part the clouds. Hey Love has a wonderful pace to it, starting slow and regret-filled (‘we lost our way / let love astray’) and coursing its way into a singalong hey hey flourish that has you stomping your foot along and rooting for this relationship rut to come to a close… there is such hopefulness in the sound.

The band is a family affair comprised of frontman Justin Miner, his wife, his brother, and their friends, and they self define themselves as ‘indie folkplosion.’ With resemblance to ¬†Edward Sharpe, The Lumineers and The Head and The Heart, they have folkploded into my heart. Their Hey Love EP will debut this August – more please. And happy Monday. #indie / tory
