The Lone Bellow

"We're broke in New York City/The F train takes us home," sing these Southern transplants, who call their sound "Brooklyn country music." But anyone expecting funny-bearded fiddle jams about artisanal pickles might be disappointed. The trio shape folk, gospel and blues influences into straight-ahead roots rock somewhere between the Lumineers and Lady Antebellum – from broad-shouldered anthems like "Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold" to tear-in-your-craft-beer ballads like "Two Sides of Lonely," which evokes winter snow in the BK and wouldn't sound weird soundtracking a cold spring in Music City.
