The title track to the platinum-selling 2012 album, “Babel” is another by-the-books indie foot-stomper. The band sways from soft moments of heartfelt sincerity to a roaring wall of strums against wailing vocals boasting of dedication and travel. The video throws all this to the wind, opting for an entertaining clip focusing on the band rather than something matching the song, with results that will leave you smiling (and maybe just a bit confused). The band are shown performing in an abandoned room, and as the camera turns we discover there are dozens of copies of the band performing in various ways, with some shots including multiple clones of the same member. You can view the clip below.
Babel is in stores now. If you have that record and want even more Mumford in your life, pick up the Road To Red Rock DVD and learn what life in the world’s most popular folk-pop act is really like. (http://po.st/mumfordwebsite)
