Lumineers Play a Pair of Songs on 'Colbert'

'Why do you stomp and clap so much?' host asks

By |

The Lumineers injected a rootsy feel into last night's Colbert Report with a pair of performances and an interview segment that found the band talking about moving from Brooklyn to Denver (financial reasons, Wesley Schultz said), Neyla Pekarek's job prospects and answering Colbert's probing question, "Why do you stomp and clap so much?"

In the performance segments, the Lumineers started with "Stubborn Love," which featured more stomping than clapping over steady acoustic guitar strumming and Pekarek's mournful cello. The band stuck around for a web exclusive version of "Submarines," anchored by a jaunty piano line and Schultz's lilting vocals. Both songs are from The Lumineers, the band's recently re-released debut LP.
