‘Migrant’ The Dear Hunter
It’s always a challenge for musicians as technically talented as the members of The Dear Hunter not to get lost in their own world and forget to make music for others. On its fifth album, Migrant, The Dear Hunter handles the balance well.
Whether it’s the crush of guitars on Bring You Down or the gentle interplay of piano and strings on the slower Shame, there’s tension and urgency on the tracks that knits them together thematically.
Lead singer Casey Crescenzo delivers stirring vocals that burst with emotion but stay clear of bombast.
