Let me just kick this one of with a qualifier. I actively dislike Mumford & Sons. I go out of my way to belittle anyone who expresses any sort of active liking for the least offensive music imaginable. I’m not a nice person. Which is why I’m squaring up to a tiny. little. dilemma here. Girlfriend’s one of the nicest songs I’ve ever heard. Maybe a tiny bit too nice. But I feel like posting it here is a good idea. So long as I keep the writing vague I can -if at any point in the future this lot invest in plus fours and release an album of barely disguised psalms- retract any of it.
Give it a spin. Everything aside this is really great little single.
