Mumford & Sons release their second EP, "Love Your Ground", on 3rd
November through Chess Club Recordings.
Since the quartet's formation in December 2007 through to their
introductory debut EP in July, Mumford & Sons have finely chiseled out
their status as one of Britain's most assured new acts of the year.
When it comes to making music, there is a time to take it slowly and
keep things unhurried. And then there's a time to go ballistic, let it
all out. Happily, rabble-rousing West Londoners Mumford & Sons have a
knack for doing both.
Catch the band live and you'll see four young men playing with a
lusty, let-rip fervour. Mumford & Sons divulge warmth, immaculate
musicianship, and a 'join in!' spirit, and mix it with a
heart-on-sleeve honesty and directness. Sprawling, bold, and yet
touchingly intimate, there are few, if any, acts today that have that
unique ability to truly enrapture in their live performances, where
each show becomes a cherished memory.
Togetherness is fundamental to Mumford & Sons. It's there in the
tightness of the arrangements, and the four part harmonies – it's
pretty unusual to hear pitch-perfect harmonies that are also meaty,
masculine and downright loud. And it's in the simple fact that Mumford
& Sons get such a kick out of playing together.
Mumford & Sons tour America throughout September with Johnny Flynn and
Laura Marling. The band return to the UK for a headline tour in
October and November
“The Lowly Knights are as fresh and bracing as just-squeezed lemon juice”
“… wonderful, brilliant, talented LOVELY knights... spectacular and fabulous.
I just can’t find enough adjectives.”
- Sian O’Neill, Oxjam
- Live Review, Across The Line
“Mixing the kind of literate folk pop that The Decemberists would snap
their pencils for, with spacey, wide-screen, vocal backing, The Lowly
Knights could rise higher than the dome where they recently played.”
- Hot Press
Two great bands, no door tax. This will be a great Saturday evening.
Can one of the Lowly Knights get in touch with me about this gig please!
