Video of the Moment #212: Mumford and Sons

By on Monday, 1st February 2010 at 6:00 pm

I’m not sure what, if anything, the new Mumford and Sons video for their third single, ‘The Cave,’ has to do with the song. In fact, the whole premise behind the video is a bit confusing. Why do they give their instruments to those Indian men? Did they go anywhere on the mopeds, or just drive about aimlessly? But as it’s an excuse to listen to Marcus Mumford’s gorgeous vocals, I’m not complaining.

The video has a very Summer-y feel, with the Mumford men dressed in casual suits, riding around in slow motion on a sunny day, while four random men play their instruments on a cliff by the sea at sunset. It’s a little bit of escapism, which can’t hurt in these cold winter months. As it says on their website, “What we really need is a new view. A scene of unimaginable beauty. Of far afield lands and far away seas. Of four dapper gents of Indian descent dressed in full Toy Town military regalia.” And that is exactly what you get with this video. Check it out below:
