Mumford & Sons recently returned to WFUV to perform songs from the band's new third album, Wilder Mind. A solid year working in studios on both sides of the Atlantic brought opportunities for experimentation and a more collaborative songwriting process.
Much has been written about Mumford "plugging in" for this album, but this New York City-inspired song, "Broad-Shouldered Beasts," brings the synths and more progressive melodies upfront. The instrumental palette has expanded, as well, with a few new players in the fold. But the best-selling band clearly remains fueled by the authentic passion at its core.
