Video of the Moment #1807: Mumford and Sons

While on holiday the last 2 weeks, I had a great many discussions about Mumford and Sons and their new, banjo-less (and to me, shockingly double bass-less as well) direction with friends and industry folk alike. In March, John mused over the questionable decision by Reading and Leeds 2015 bookers to have the formerly tweedy nu-folkers headline the August bank holiday festival. However you feel about Marcus Mumford and his crew, their third album ‘Wilder Mind’ is not going anywhere anytime soon, whether it be from the physical and online record shops where it has already achieved a #1 placing or mainstream radio. Therefore, it probably behooves you to at least give some of the new material a shot. Hey, at least you tried, right?

‘The Wolf’ is the next single from Mumford and Sons, due out the 29th of June on Gentlemen of the Road / Island Records. In the official promo for the song, the band plays live and without their trademark tweed, looking more Kings of Leon than themselves. Odd? Good? Bad? Have a go below and let us know what you think.
