Lord Huron is known for its vintage and classic inspirations, with their sonic novels sharing '50s and '60s melancholy vibes. "We were looking for a way to be evocative and nostalgic in an indefinable way," Ben Schneider shared with Atwood Magazine. "I do think there’s a real value in referencing music of the past, just because people already have emotion tied up with that music, so you kinda get it for free by reminding people of that music, even in subtle ways," he explains.
