Artists love to experiment with their music and Mumford & Sons is no exception!
The London-based band known for their signature folk-rock sound are contemplating going electronic for their follow-up to Babel, which reached number one on the charts both in the U.S. and the U.K.
Frontman Marcus Mumford said:
“We’ve always done what feels good, rather than what we’ve thought long and hard about, and we’ll do whatever feels soulful next, whether that’s with an electric guitar or a synthesizer.”
“It’s dangerous for us to talk about what we’ve been discussing for the third album, but we do have greater ambitions not to just stay within certain sonic confines,” added band member Ben Lovett. “We’re not going to be the band that stands for folk music or organic music.”
We’re excited to hear how Mumford & Sons’ forthcoming project will sound. Maybe they’ll consider incorporating other genres as well!
