Mumford & Sons – “I Will Wait”

Our folksy friends Mumford & Sons are back, and their latest single “I Will Wait” does not disappoint. Two and a half years is a long time to wait between album releases; in that time, Mumford & Sons acquired an impressive fan base after catapulting to international fame and recognition with their humble but powerful debut album Sigh No More. With just a month remaining before their sophomore release, Mumford & Sons present us with “I Will Wait,” a catchy track that makes enthusiastic use of the group’s trademark banjos and Marcus Mumford’s earnest vocals. It only takes a couple of listens to start humming along, and if “I Will Wait” is any indication of what the forthcoming Babel will be like, it seems that Mumford & Sons are picking up right where they left off, taking the sounds and styles they explored throughout Sigh No More in new artistic directions.
