We've been huge fans of Hallelujah the Hills for a while now, and based on the first two singles off their upcoming album, this one might be their finest to date.
"Running Hot With Fire" is the latest, and it does this great dance over the line between mainstream alt-folk-rock and the weird. Singer Ryan Walsh keeps up a speak-singing cadence somewhere between Tom Petty and Craig Finn. It's mid-tempo song with fairly straightforward musically with odd little instrument flourishes and shout along choruses that somehow turn it into an epic rocker.
You can listen to "Running Hot With Fate" below. I'm You, the latest album from Hallelujah the Hills, will be out November 15. You can pre-order your copy via Bandcamp.

If you happen to be in the Boston area or want to make a trip, they'll be playing an album release show at Great Scott in Allston on December 19.
