Hamilton Leithauser’s songs have been the quintessential definition of indie music for millennials. Having been a member of the group, The Walkmen, the singer has gained recognition for his piercing-yet-soothing vocals, incredible stage presence and excellent songwriting skills.

The singer’s latest record “I had a Dream that You Were Mine” is a collaborative effort with former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij. The successful collaboration has resulted in a joint tour scheduled to launch in fall 2017. Hamilton Leithauser tickets for the tour’s stops are available now.
About the Artist
Hamilton Leithauser embarked on his solo journey in 2011 after his sensational band, The Walkmen went on a hiatus. Leithauser took this time to collect a team of crew and musicians to record a new solo track. In looking for new artists, the singer met Rostam Batmanglij, the former music producer for the Vampire Weekend and this launched a crucial musical relationship which has been bearing fruits ever since. “Black Hours,” his debut album became the first result of this relationship and its acclaim proved that going solo was a very good decision.
Five years later, the world bore witness to Leithauser’s second album “I Had a Dream that You Were Mine” which shows off the true collaborative genius between Leithauser and Batmanglij. Batmanglij’s piano coupled with Leithauser’s soul-stirring voice has become a signature sound in modern indie music and Leithauser’s outfit has been selling out shows across the country ever since.
In keeping with The Walkmen’s traditional music, Leithauser maintained a mix of old and new when coming up with songs for his first solo record. He sought inspiration from pop music from the post-war era, Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan being on the top of his list. However, the tracks are not stuck in the post-war period at all and instead show many modern nuances. The opening singe “5 AM” for example, exhibits a pensive, low but determined piano, which is reflective far more of modern EDM than of Sinatra. Once juxtaposed with other instrumentation and Leithauser’s genre-defying voice, however, the vintage influences become obvious.
“Black Hours” begins as a reflection of The Walkmen’s sound and one is led to believe that maybe this album is simply the same music. However, these doubts are quickly put at ease as the album furthers to hits such as “Alexandra.” This song is cunningly simple, without any of the elaborate musical layering of the other tracks. While incorporating a capella beats, an acoustic guitar and an upbeat harmonica, the song has a folksy touch to it which is refreshing in a musical world that otherwise makes abundant use of auto-tuning.
I Had a Dream that You Were Mine
This album, released in 2016, follows the same streak and maintains the collaboration between Leithauser and Batmanglij. The music again looks at the past for inspiration, maintains a largely retro theme, and Leithauser’s modern rhetoric and time-defying vocal style makes the tracks relevant in today’s day and age. And this works.
Batmanglij’s music and Leithauser’s voice combined works through several musical decades on this album. Spanish guitars, harmonica, Disney-esque music, low-key rapping and highly melodic numbers all exist in this album. The seamless fusion of various musical styles is Batmanglij’s signature style and something Leithauser has no difficulty keeping up with. The track “You Ain’t that Young Kid” showcases this album in all its glory; a piano-harmonica duo which resonates of Bob Dylan’s music but with a layering of a slide-guitar, backing vocals and echoing drums.
This is Hamilton Leithauser’s latest album so far, although the artist has confessed to have been working on new music at present with his solo outfit. With The Watchmen nowhere near to reforming, Leithauser and Batmanglij fans can expect new music from the act. At present, Leithauser is touring various cities in North America, performing intimate club and theater concerts. Some of these performances have been recorded professionally as well and they show that smaller settings are best for this artist’s solo music, since it is largely acoustic and folk music. There is an electric intimacy between the musicians and the audience, which is being translated into sold out shows. Therefore, make sure you have your Hamilton Leithauser tickets before they have run out.
