The songwriting and production on Mumford & Sons new album is flawless, and their new single “Ditmas” is no exception.

Album Review: Mumford & Sons - Wilder Mind (2015 LP)

Many a band have been faced with the difficult task of changing their sound to meet the demands of the ever changing preferences of their fans and the wider music community. While some may decide to maintain the same instrumental line up and instead change the scope, lyrical content or aural aesthetics of their sounds, Mumford & Sons have gone with a complete about face, moving in a decidedly different direction for their third album Wilder Mind.

the AU interview: Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons (UK) on 'Wilder Mind', working with Aaron Dessner & more.

When it was announced that a new Mumford & Sons album was on its way and the public got a taste of record number three in lead single "Believe", it's safe to say that they caught people's attention. The new album, Wilder Mind, sees a noticeable change in direction for the British band who, although have been known for some high energy and powerful live shows, have still been labelled as the banjo-loving folk band behind "Little Lion Man". As guitarist Winston Marshall enthuses, breaking free of these labels is something he's looking forward to proving once the album drops this May.

Festival Review: Splendour in the Grass Day One - North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay (26.07.13)

The sun was out as more than 17,500 punters descended on North Byron Parklands, the permanent Splendour in the Grass site for the first time, for a day headlined by past festival favourites Mumford and Sons. Situated about 20 minutes north of Byron Bay, this is the site the Splendour organisers bought to be the event's home quite a few years ago, though has been caught in council approval hell ever since. This resulted in two glorious years in Woodford and a brief return to Belongil Fields down the road last year. But, much like Bluesfest before it, we now have the chance to get used to a brand new site, which will no doubt grow and develop in the years to come; as it will do by pure capacity alone. As part of the deal with council, the festival is starting off with a reduced capacity this year, and will add more patrons gradually (by the thousands) in the years to come, with 25,000 being the reported capacity that will be allowed in 2014. We'll even be seeing a series of other events on the site, such as the recently announced Byron Falls Festival over New Years.
