Mumford & Sons release slow-burning 'Snake Eyes'

Posted on

James Minchin III

Turns out swapping out banjos for electric guitars doesn’t make that much of a difference—at least for Mumford & Sons it doesn’t, as they prove with new track “Snake Eyes.”

The foursome released “Snake Eyes,” the third track off the upcoming Wilder Mind, Sunday with a live video that trades whimsical twinkly lights for a harsh red glow. This one is considerably slower than “Believe” and “The Wolf,” but does feature one of the band’s signature builds about three-quarters of the way through.

Watch the video below, and pick up Wilder Mind when it arrives May 5.
