Watch a new music video for Lord Huron’s “Time to Run” (playing Kung Fu Necktie in October)

Up-and-coming indie rock band Lord Huron seems to gravitate towards expansive, magical settings for their cinematic music videos. The band’s first video – for the song “The Stranger” – was a surreal murder mystery set on the desolate shores of Lake Huron, near band leader Ben Schneider’s Michigan stomping grounds. The new video for “Time to Run,” the single from their forthcoming album Lonesome Dreams, is a western set in the desolate Mojave desert, suggesting the band’s current base of operations in Los Angeles. The song was a My Morning Download last month, and you can still get an mp3 of it here. Want to hear more? The band plays Kung Fu Necktie on Oct. 8, and Lonesome Dreams is in stores on Oct. 9.

My Morning Download: “Time To Run” by Lord Huron (playing Kung Fu Necktie in October)


The Los Angeles based Lord Huron is the band created by singer-songwriter Ben Schneider. Schneider was born in Michigan, studied art in college and lived in France and New York before moving to Los Angeles in 2005. In May 2010, Schneider traveled home to Michigan and spent a week on the shores of Lake Huron where he recorded the three songs that would comprise the Into the Sun EP that came out in June, 2010, followed by his second EP, Mighty, in November, 2010. Since the release of Schneider’s debut EP, Lord Huron has garnered a critical following in the music blogosphere for his tropical flavored, rhythmically fluid and atmospheric songs that are reminiscent of Paul Simon’s sweeping beauty, The Rhythm of the Saints. Lord Huron’s debut full length album Lonesome Dreams is being released on October 9th on I Am Sounds. Lord Huron plays at Kung Fu Necktie on Monday, October 8th. Below, download “Time To Run.”

Lord Huron announces new album, playing Kung Fu Necktie in October

Imagine yourself getting off a boat and stepping onto the sandy beaches of some magnificent island. Your welcoming song would probably be from Lord Huron. Originally began as the solo project of Michigan native Ben Schneider, the band is now a four-piece group that includes Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Their sound is incomparable in that it evokes strong and passionate lyrics around amicable and harmonious instrumentals. They focus largely on landscapes and water, incorporating bubbles popping and water streaming sound effects in some of their songs. Lord Huron just announced their debut full-length, Lonesome Dreams, which comes out on IAMSOUND Records on October 9th. Below, you can view a teaser for the first single off the album, “Time to Run”. Lord Huron plays at Kung Fu Necktie on October 8th.
