Sigh No More

Sigh No More

English folk rock band Mumford & Sons have announced that they’ll be playing two extra special outdoor events this summer with some of my other favourites like Vampire Weekend, Mystery Jets, The Vaccines and Johnny Flynn. So what did Mumford & Sons’ lead vocals Marcus Mumford have to say about it?
“As Pep Guardolia (a Spanish football manager- I did my reaserch) would probably say, keeping possession of the ball is Rules One, Two and Three of football. As Mumford & Sons would definitely say, Rules One, Two and Three of being a band are: Play Live.”

You can’t help but love Mumford & Sons, it could be because they play instruments that you probably didn’t even know existed, ( a resonator guitar? Do you know anyone -that isn’t Winston Marshall- who actually plays a resonator guitar?!) or it could be for their wonderfully catchy (if slightly predictable) choruses.
“Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you. It will set you free” – Sigh No More.

I have to admit, I much prefer their older stuff in comparison to their more recent stuff, back when they hadn’t quite reached ubiquity and they weren’t labeled as “hipsters”.
