Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More

Mumford & Sons

Sigh No More

Gentlemen of the Road/Island

If, as Mumford & Sons bassist Ted claims, music fans are looking for something with a bit more heart, then they can certainly find a sizeable chunk of it on this stunning debut.

At times it is haunting, others euphoric, but their blend of old time, sepia-tinted bluegrass and shimmering folk-pop sounds fresh, vibrant and uplifting.

Banjos and double bassĀ  may give the impression of a derivative novelty act, but together the band mould delicious harmonies with overpowering melodies.

And as they planned, it just makes you want to have a good old sing song.
An almost perfect piece of modern folk, with tunes that linger long after you press stop.
