Mumford and Sons – "Cousins" (Vampire Weekend Cover)

mumforandsons 500x498 Mumford and Sons   "Cousins" (Vampire Weekend Cover)

Mumford and Sons stopped by the BBC Live Lounge and pulled off this great cover of Vampire Weekend’s “Cousins”. The original version of “Cousins” has such a distinct, hyperactive Vampire Weekend feel to it and I was sure that any attempt to recreate that would be awkward and forced – I was wrong. Mumford and Sons have really owned this song. They start it off slowly, easing into each line before giving one run at a stripped down chorus. And then with a “1, 2! 1, 2, 3, 4!” the song takes off in classic Mumford and Sons mode and doesn’t look back. Don’t miss out on this one. Thanks to Will.
