The Lone Bellow React To Hearing Themselves On The Radio

(Radio.com) The first time The Lone Bellow heard themselves on the radio, singer and mandolin player Brian Elmquist literally face-planted into the snow.

"We were just on a week-long radio tour and we were driving in the snow into Chicago, and all of a sudden this minute-long commercial that featured five or six of our songs came on talking about a show we were playing," bandmate Kanene Pipkin told Radio.com.

They pulled the van over, started screaming and did what every buzzy Brooklyn band does in such moments: They busted out a sled they had in the back and promptly started playing in the snow.

Pipkin likened the moment to the memorable "we're on the radio!" scene in the 1996 film That Thing You Do! but it doesn't stop there. The folk-tinged trio may have just dropped its self-titled debut in January, but they've already had several memorable experiences with TV appearances and opening slots for the likes of The Civil Wars and Brandi Carlile. They've been compared to bands like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, playing what they themselves characterize as "country soul." A lot more.
