Mumford & Sons ‘Wilder Mind’ Debut’s at #1

Mumford & Sons have torn into the charts this week with their third LP, ‘Wilder Mind’ to claim their first ever Australian #1 debut, joining the UK’s #1.

The chart position signals the confident endorsement of the band’s new direction, with glowing reviews springing up around the globe:

‘Mumford & Sons at their most enthralling’ NME

‘Here we have Mumford & Sons as a rock band, taking a leaf out of their friends the National’s book, where solid bass and drums give foundation to a strident rock dynamic, coloured by noodling electric guitars and subliminal synths’ The Australian

‘the stunning Tompkins Square Park mixes The National and Arcade Fire…Mumford’s voice has grown more powerful – the clarity on Cold Arms sears here. Broad-Shouldered Beast is the sweetest thing Mumford & Sons have done…’ THE HERALD SUN

‘This is a record marked by its elegance, pace and excitement’ Q MAGAZINE

New single ‘The Wolf’ continues to climb the airplay charts both in Australia and internationally with the band recently performing a rousing rendition at BBC’s Later With Jools Holland, hot off the back of an appearance on the Late Show with Letterman performing hit single ‘Believe’. With feature albums on triple j and Triple M, ‘Wilder Mind’ is a step to a different sonic road for the UK outfit, a step that is proving to be the right one as far as fans are concerned.

Mumford’s Ben Lovett confirmed to triple j last week they have plans to land in Australia later this year. Stay tuned for an impending tour announcement in the coming weeks.
