Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling: #3, Hozier

Written by Eric Riley.

Boston Calling is here to put summer to rest with a bang. If you’ve kept an eye on us for the last few years, you know the deal. Let’s do this again, shall we? Here is our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for!

On our list so far: #7. Grey Season/Dirty Bangs, #6. Of Monsters and Men, #5. Twin Shadow, #4. Father John Misty


Today we talk about our #3 pick, Hozier.

Not many artists have
had the breakout over the last year or so as Hozier. Thanks largely to
the mammoth success of “Take Me to Church,” which has racked up nearly half a billion plays so far on Spotify, Hozier
earned nominations at the Billboard Music Awards, the MTA Awards, and the
Grammys.

However, don’t let
one smash single blind your judgment – Hozier’s debut is, start to finish, a dark,
soulful, soaring record of songs that will sound just as beautiful echoing off
of the walls of City Hall.  

For fans of: The Horrible Crowes, Lorde, Straylight Run
For a taste, check out: “From Eden,” “Someone New,”
“Foreigner’s God”
Catch them: Sunday, 8:15pm; Red Stage
