Riff: Mumford & Sons – “I Will Wait”

Aug 29, 2012

“Well I came home/Like a stone/And I fell heavy into your arms”

from I Will Wait lyrics by Mumford & Sons

Touring away from Carey Mulligan can be no fun. But Marcus Mumford professes to wait for his bride in Babel‘s lead single, which, sonically, borders on painful self-pastiche come the plucky crescendo. Are Mumford and Sons one trick, perpetually stomping, ponies?
