Artist of the Day: The Dear Hunter

Let's face it: there's no way to properly sum up what the Dear Hunter has accomplished in the last five years. Casey Crescenzo and company has torn up the indie scene from one album to the next, between the theatrical storytelling of the Act albums to the remarkably diverse Color Spectrum EPs. Every album the group has released has pushed the envelope of the indie realm in some regard, and refined the band's sound even further.

This is precisely why fans of The Dear Hunter have every right to be excited for April to come. The month will see the release of Migrant, out April 2nd-- and sneak peeks hint at the idea of the album being yet another bombshell in the band's discography. It's a different type of shockwave, though, one that comes from uniformity instead of scattershot experimentation. Granted, Crescenzo will push boundaries on Migrant, but they'll be subtler ones than the bursts of color present in the group's most recent releases. For a taste of what's to come, check out a couple of the songs that have been released thus far.
