‘Stubborn Love,’ The Lumineers’ latest single from their self-titled 2012 album orchestrates the deepest, most intimate side to the folk-rock trio’s diverse style. As the title would imply, this track portrays the negative side to love. Along with its poignant lyrics, The Lumineers’ delicate instrumentals perfectly complement this portrayal; fully accentuating the solemn yet optimistic tale. It’s little wonder that ‘Stubborn Love’ was selected for single release; the deeply evocative track jumping from western melancholy to infectious chorus throughout, leaving it irresistibly repeatable.
