Musical Magic: Mumford&Sons

I discovered that this band even exists a few days ago and I honestly love every song they have ever sung. Their influences include some of my other favourites: Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, as well as Kings of Leon and I just find their music to be such a breath of fresh air and sincerely beautiful. They write inspiring songs whisch one can identify with... Here is the music video of Winter Winds, but do yourself a favour, check out their website and listen to their other songs (especially Awake my Soul, After the Storm and Little Lion Man).

The band consists of Marcus Mumford (vocals, guitar, drums, mandolin), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion, drums), "Country" Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, dobro), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass, drums, guitar). The band formed in October 2007, rising out of what some in the media labelled the "West London folk scene."

  1. Silent friend of many distances, feel
    how space dilates with each breath of yours.
    Among the rafters of dark belfries peal
    your own sweet tones. Your predators

    will grow strong upon such fare.
    Know transformation in its varied sign.
    Which experience produces most despair?
    If drinking offend, transform yourself to wine.

    Be, in this immensity of night,
    the magic force at your sense's crossroad;
    the purpose of their mysterious plan.

    And though you fade from earthly sight,
    declare to the silent earth: I flow.
    To the rushing water say: I am.
