Mumford & Sons are well-known as an indie folk group that plays acoustic instruments. They mostly wrote original folk songs but are they changing their direction in sound for new album? In the studio and on stage, you always saw them with acoustic instruments. I never saw them with electric instruments in their hands, correct me if I’m wrong. They’ve always used acoustic instruments like acoustic guitars, mandolins and upright bass.
Check them out in this video and what do you see? The singer has an electric guitar in his hands and the bass player is using an electric bass instead of an upright.
So are they going for a more rock n’ roll direction for their next album? That’s what it’s looking like to me. Looking forward to it as I am a fan of this band myself.
