Mumford And Sons Embrace An Electric Sound In 'Believe'

Mumford & Sons released the first track off of their forthcoming album, Wilder Mind today. Entitled "Believe," the track is the first example of their new "electric" sound. In an interview with Billboard, Marcus Mumford explained that they're drawing from influences like Radiohead and Led Zeppelin for this seemingly sudden shift.

This change sounds shocking in theory, but in practice it translates quite well. "Believe" is a beautiful song that would not have achieved the same effect had the band stuck with acoustic instruments. Light synthesizers hum subtly as Mumford's unique vocals captivate. The big shock comes right before the drums come in, when suddenly an electric guitar rings out and ushers in the next section of the song. Mumford purists may be hesitant at first, but this effort is clearly well thought out and executed skillfully.

Listen to the new track and check out Baeble's concert session with this amazing group below.
