Song of the Day: I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons
This is their brand new song foreshadowing their upcoming album, and I think we’re in for something special when that comes out.
Mumford and Sons are absolutely brilliant and there was a lot of doubt concerning the second album but hearing I Will Wait blows away any doubt whatsoever. There’s no point in it lingering because this track completely blows it away!
I said yesterday that folk music isn’t really known for its energy, well I meant to say excluding this group, because they are energetic and it comes across in their music and they are so totally awesome because they have maintained the sincerity of the genre whilst injecting it with a new life.
Marcus Mumford’s vocals are as brilliant as always, bringing the lyrics to life with a voice that sounds as if it has suffered a million emotions. This of course is supported rather well by the rest of the band with their fantastic control over their instruments, making this feel more than a folk song, or perhaps evolving the genre ever so slightly.
They have created yet another song that is both saddening and uplifting, another song that can be belted out and danced along to. When they all sing together it lifts the track to a whole new level, it is truly spectacular.
This is going to become as popular as The Cave.
