Video of the Moment #1865: Mumford and Sons

Some people have not taken too kindly to Mumford and Sons’ decision to go banjo-less. To be honest, I haven’t paid them much mind since being disappointed by 2012’s ‘Babel’, so I wasn’t expecting much.

Their brand new promo video is for ‘Ditmas’, from their third album ‘Wilder Mind’, and I was actually quite surprised at what I heard. The anthemic undertones are still there, and it seems that in addition to getting rid of the banjoes and tweed, their attempt to rebrand as a more middle of the road indie rock band is quite successful. Between shots of a man and his horse running wild in the middle of the country are shots of the band giving it their all on this song, and you can’t fault them for a slick, if conventional video. Watch it below.

For all things Mumford and Sons on TGTF, go here.
