The latest single from Irish troubadour Hozier is both a somber introspection and a strident anthem. The singer, who just performed at XPN’s NonCOMM and announced a debut headlining show at The Trocadero this fall, evokes the brooding piano pulse of James Blake’s cover of “Limit to Your Love” on the quiet verse, but swells to something rousing, anthemic and positively pop-oriented on the very U2-esque refrain. The song premiered on the BBC last night; take a listen below, and catch Hozier at The Troc on November 1st. Tickets and info can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
