Mumford & Sons recorded an EP, "Love Your Ground", and performed in small to medium-sized venues in the UK and the US playing to new audiences and raising interest for a forthcoming album. Their debut album, Sigh No More, was released in the UK and Ireland in October 2009, and February 2010 in the US. The album reached number one in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and eventually peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200 in the US. The band gained popularity throughout 2010, performing for larger audiences and making their first network television appearances in the US. On 1 December 2010, the band received two Grammy Award nominations, one for Best New Artist and the other for Best Rock Song. The ensuing live performance at the Grammy ceremony in February 2011 led to an increased airplay and popularity for singles from Sigh No More.
They practice what they preach; everything is collaborative. Their music draws from a desire to grow together and a sense of security within the group. Like siblings, they fight, make up, and in the end, emerge stronger.
Their collective approach might draw comparisons to Arcade Fire or Broken Social Scene, but their sound finds its place somewhere between the folk-tinged rock n’ roll of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and the youthful upbeat pop of Cults, siphoning the energy of pop punk on a caffeine drip. For them, it starts with having a message and trying to say it in the most uplifting way, inspired equally by the magnetism and energy of San Francisco, as they are by the solitude and serenity of the Big Sur coast.
