Hold Onto What You Believe.

En este 2010 he descubierto a muchos artistas que para mi eran nuevos. Entre todos ellos, destacan Mumford & Sons. Con base en Londres, esta banda formada por Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett y Ted Dwane son lo que podemos clasificar como auténticos amantes de la música. Por ese motivo han conseguido una nominación a los Premios Grammy 2011 como Mejor Artista Novel (junto a, entre otros, Florence & The Machine, otra banda que merece la pena escuchar) habiendo editado tan sólo un disco, ‘Sigh No More‘. Se formaron a finales de 2007, creándose un nombre en la escena independiente londinense durante 2008 y editando tres EP en pocos meses: ‘Mumford & Sons‘, ‘Love Your Ground‘ y ‘The Cave And The Open Sea‘. Fueron teloneros de Laura Marling y Johnny Flynn, trabajando su ya característico sonido folk melancólico y sus letras poéticas. Su primer disco está producido por Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Björk) y recoge todo el fervor de sus directos. Sólo espero que el Premio Grammy no caiga en manos equivocadas.
No hay que perderles la pista.

In this 2010 I’ve discovered a lot of artists that were new to me. Among them stand Mumford & Sons. London based, this band formed by Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane are what we could say real music lovers. For that reason they earned a nomination for a Grammy Award 2011 in the Best New Artist category (along with Florence & The Machine – another band worth a listen, and others) having just released one album, ‘Sigh No More‘. The band was formed in the end of 2007, making a name out of themselves in the Londoner underground scene all through 2008 and releasing three EPs in few months: ‘Mumford & Sons’, ‘Love Your Ground‘ and ‘The Cave And The Open Sea‘. They supported Laura Marling and Johnny Flynn, working on their now characteristic melancholic folk sound and their poetic lyrics. Their first album has been produced by Markus Draws (Arcade Fire, Björk) and encompasses all the fervor of their live shows. I just hope that the Grammy Award doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.
We shouldn’t lost track of them.
