Liar – Mumford & Sons

14 Aug

Mumford & Sons have begun to take over the USA, after having conquered Britain with their folksy yet heartfelt sound. For some reason this song, Liar was never released on their album Sigh No More in early 2010, but we still think it’s a treat.

This song is entirely acoustic, and very very mellow. I’m still not sure why it wasn’t released with the rest of the album because frankly, I think it’s a really nice song. The beginning is as easygoing as anyone could possibly ask for, and it gets even better in places as it swells and then reverts back to its original calm sound.

Mumford & Sons are at the top of their game after having just played at Lollapalooza in Chicago, and I don’t think it will be long before they’re being raved about in America.

Their unique sound (which is helped by the inclusion of the banjo in a lot of their songs) helps them to stand out and make them great performers on stage, so if they come to your neighbourhood, it’s not something you’ll want to miss.

Since the song was never actually released on the album, it’s impossible to find a live performance video of that particular track, so have a look at this one on Jools Holland Live. The song is called The Cave and it showcases their talent brilliantly:
