Review of Mumford and Sons – Whispers in the Dark

Straight from their success at the Grammy’s and the Brit’s – Mumford and Sons release another single ‘Whispers in the Dark’ from ‘Babel’.

Can the boys keep the quality of the previous single releases? Is the Pope Catholic? (If you needed to query either of those, please desist reading the rest of this).

Song aside, the video is a clever four split screen affair, in a Peep Show style following each member, and ends as the curtain raises on a live show.

Although it’s track two on the second album, it’s been knocking around a bit since the latter part of 2011.

I’m probably a late starter to the world of Mumford and Sons having only really discovered them on the second single from ‘Sigh No More’. Since then I’ve followed what they’ve achieved and managed to see them live – which, ranks in my top 10 gigs (those who know, will realise having seen over 30 gigs in the past 18 month is a massive thing).

There’s already work on album number three with synth and electric guitar being muted. However they develop and move their sound, on this latest single’s performance, there shall be more converts to the cause of the Mumford of Sons!

‘Whispers in the Dark’ is a standard Mumford and Sons song, quiet and slow verse, bursting into life in the bridge and chorus, which is what makes them live, something unique. Just when you think the gig is in a lull, it’s back with a bang, and ‘Whisper in the Dark’ is no exception.

It might not set the singles chart alive, but it’ll prove helpful to boosting sales of ‘Babel’ there’s no doubt about that!

Mumford and Sons can do no wrong at the moment.  Do you agree with the review and rate ‘Whispers in the Dark’ as a classic Mumford’s track or is it all hype? Let us know by adding a comment below, tweeting us @MusicEyz or by posting to the Music Eyz Facebook page
