I confess I have a weak spot for Mumford and Sons. I loved their Folk – Rock sound, their creativity and their willingness to do something a little different.
A few weeks ago it was announced that Mumford and Sons would headline this years Reading and Leeds festival and shortly afterwards it was announced that their forthcoming album would be all ‘electric’.
It promised to be an interesting departure. Then the band released a video of ‘Believe’ from the forthcoming album.
It must be said that if this song is anything to go by then it is certainly different, sadly not in a good way. If Marcus Mumford’s goal was to turn Mumford and Sons into a second rate Coldplay cover act then he has certainly achieved it.
I can’t even begin to describe how awful I think this is!
