Album Review: Mumford & Sons – ‘Wilder Mind’

posted by Oscar May 8, 2015

For their third studio release, Mumford & Sons ditched their signature Folk-Pop-Rock sound and ventured to the world of “more traditional” Rock music. Going electric was a pretty damn big move for this band and it’s quite justifiable that fans would worry about this transition, but at least the first looks at the new project came with promise of a solid album. Mumford & Sons have shown time-and-again that they are able to write catchy tunes and the challenge they took on with this album was to appeal to a broader audience while keeping day-1 fans satisfied no matter what genre their music can ultimately fall under. This is a tangible test to see whether the band can follow this new direction or if it’s simply a blip that for them would best be left behind. Continue Reading

Mumford & Sons – “Believe”

Finally, here’s the new Mumford & Sons tune. After announcing that the band were going in a new direction by “going electric” for new album Wilder Mind, the first cut from that release is titled “Believe.”

For this new single, we see band adopt a sound you’d relate to Coldplay and The National. The song slowly builds for half its length, driven by a mellow guitar arrangement and a keyboard riff until the electric guitar hits it and changes the tempo.

Hear the new song below. Continue Reading

Puro pinche Mumford, bro! (Don’t mind the PoD inside joke there)…

Mumford & Sons have announced their new album will be released on May 4th via Glassnote Records and it will be titled Wilder Mind.

The follow-up to 2012’s Babel was revealed on the band’s website and it will be a 12-track effort. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band dropped a bit of a bomb by dropping the fact that they will do a Bob Dylan and “go electric” and that new album will feature “U2-sized guitars, synths, spacey mellotrons, and even some drum machines.”

Frontman Marcus Mumford declared:

“We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us… We’ve got a broader taste in music than just that.”

Check out the teaser below.
