Indie-folk darlings shine well
American indie-folk darlings The Lumineers shone with confidence on the fourth night of Belsonic.
They arrived on a stage furnished with wooden fences to create a folksy, down-home feel – but with three glistening chandeliers for some old world class.
They launched into Submarines with its infectious chorus. And a foot-stamping chorus is what this band does best, no more so than in their breakthrough hit Ho Hey.
Lead singer Wesley Schultz engaged with the crowd, yelling: "Come on Belfast, if anyone's asleep in these apartments, let's wake them up."
Mid-set, Wesley took a walk through the crowd, which parted in the middle like it was Moses himself, and sang out from the sea of fans, perhaps the crowning moment of the night.
