World Wide WELCOME to our website. Welcome to our very own unique corner of this bizarre and faintly glorious world of sites, blogs, tweets and streams.
We hereby launch the MUMFORD & SONS website with both joy and ambition. With joy, because it feels like the beginning of us being a proper band with a fancy website which, we have to admit, is pretty fun. With ambition, because we indulge in visions of creating a community – a family – albeit online, where we can share with you, you can share with us, and you can share with each other. Utopian? Yessir.
We reckon the internet is alright. In fact, we may not have been here as a band without it. The fact that we can drive to a town we’ve never been to and play shows to people who know our music, is incredible, and helped to no end by the internet.
The danger is that we all get better doing life online than we do in the flesh. That ain’t the idea. We still prefer eye contact to skype contact. Sometimes there’s just a bit too much information– and we’re not that interesting. BUT, that said, we endeavour to have a good old crack at being web geeks.
Our website will be a place where you can find out what we’re doing as a band, where we’re playing, what we’re releasing and all that stuff. We’re going to try and put quality before quantity, and await your feedback with baited breath. The idea is that it’s also a place where we all get to rub shoulders a bit, speak our minds about stuff not just to do with music, as you’ll see soon enough.
Our mantra: Don’t always just write the first thing that comes into your head, and don’t rush. There’s no rush, hombres.
And so we begin.
