Mumford and Sons Cover Vampire Weekend

I am a huge fan of Mumford and Sons with ‘Sigh No More’ being one of my top albums of 2009, however, I have never really liked Vampire weekend and never understood the huge hype surrounding them. Having said that this cover of the the Vampire Weekend song ‘Cousins’ adds a whole new meaning to the song with Marcus’ touching vocals and the folky-country spin that the Sons put on the track making it a truly enlightening listen.

Watch them perform the cover on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge:
