The number one album of last year (says Oli), came in the form of a collaboration between ex-Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser, and ex-Vampire Weekender Rostam Batmanglij. ‘I Had A Dream That You Were Mine’ is an album that twists and turns in a truly unique and arresting way that made it a firm favourite for this writer. They toured together on select dates in the US and Europe last year, but now Hamilton has gone solo again (it seems), as Rostam won’t be joining.
Rostam will be absent, sure, but Hamilton’s band consists of Indie elite such as Stephen Patterson and Gregory Roberts of White Rabbits. With a raw and heartfelt set, you can expect huge songs filled with a strong delivery.
Hamilton brings his show to The Lantern on 9th March. Tickets are still available.
Watch Hamilton + Rostam perform “1959”.
