New Mumford & Sons song ‘I Will Wait’ sounds exactly like every other one of their songs

Hey do you guys like good music? No? OK, read on.

If you’ve ever listened to U2 and thought “this is too ethnic for me” then Mumford & Sons are probably the band for you, with their patented brand of end-of-a-romantic-comedy-montage-music. The band also all look like waiters at a Brooklyn vegan restaurant, so there’s that too.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that their new song “I Will Wait” sounds exactly like the kind of thing a 13 year old girl might imagine will be played at her wedding to and eventual penetration by Justin Bieber. It’s the aural equivalent of eating an entire box of Triscuits for dinner. The only situation I could see this song being pleasant would be if I had never heard music or had been perhaps locked in a room, Scientology style, for several months.

But I mean, could you imagine being the banjo player? Could you imagine waking up every day knowing that you played the same three chords (D, Eminor, G) over and over again for every single one of their fucking songs, which sound exactly the same? I’m sure that guy gets laid. Good for him, to be honest.
