Mumford & Sons have released the video for their heartbreaking new single "Ditmas," a song that perfectly illustrates how the band has evolved into new territory while still maintaining their well-known sound. The video, shot in Kieve, Ukraine, utilizes a Cossack determinedly taming a wild horse. This narrative juxtaposes the lyrical narrative, which tells the anguished story of a dying relationship. When combined, the video and the song create a hopeful dichotomy. What is lost can be found, what is wild can be tamed.
Mumford & Sons most recent album, Wilder Mind, was released on May 4th.
