Mumford & Sons have finally shared a song they’ve been working on for years. The band debuted “Blind Leading The Blind”, a song inspired by the works of American author John Steinbeck.
The song was originally intended to be included on the band’s most recent album Delta, but it didn’t feel complete in time for the release. They kept it in their back pocket where they forgot about it, until last month when they were awarded the prestigious John Steinbeck Award. Frontman Marcus Mumford is a self-proclaimed studier of the great author and decided it was the sign they needed to complete the song.

Mumford & Sons are back in Barcelona six years after their last visit. Since then their popularity has only grown, so they’re out to fill up the Palau Sant Jordi this time around. The band got their start in West London in 2007 by multi-instrumentalists Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane playing what was then called the new wave of English folk. In 2009 they released their first album, ‘Sigh no More’, which helped them make a name for themselves on the world pop scene. They’re back with several Grammys on their shelves to present their fourth album, ‘Delta’ (2018).
Sometimes inevitability dictates the roads we take, leading us to fateful coincidences, Craigslist ads, and a little bit of blind luck. That’s exactly how four-piece Wyland came to be.
Marrying atmospheric rock with a modern pop sensibility and traditional strings and piano, Wyland skillfully crafts tunes that show appreciation for both the present and the past. The band has appeared alongside quite an impressive roster thus far, including Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, and the Vaccines, to name a few.
The up-and-coming quartet has received much praise from publications like The Jersey Journal, PopMatters, The Jersey Journal, PopMatters, The Deli and All Things Go. CMJ stated, “Wyland has an instantly digestible sound. The band blends suburban angst with city kid confidence.”
With his deep voice and stripped-down, introspective sound, Nathaniel Rateliff has become one of the most interesting and admired figures on the US folk scene, sharing the bill with the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, Bon Iver and Wilco. On his latest album, released in 2015, he takes a surprising foray into soul territory, coming up with a collection of unusual, intense songs. Has our man joined the recent neo soul movement? Not exactly – Rateliff takes things a step further and reworks the genre, giving it a fresh, original touch. Don’t miss this chance to hear the latest sounds from one of the leading figures on the American indie music scene. Today at sala Barts.
