A lot of bands have pre-show rituals, what it takes for the members to pump themselves up for the stage. For Mumford & Sons in their video for "Whispers in the Dark," theirs may sometimes involve a sea adventure and fashions from the 1800s. While Marcus Mumford spiritual, desirous lyrics may point to an actual "ark," but the lead singer's chosen vessel is a motorcycle here, the leather jacket covering his usual tweed vest.

Marcus Mumford may be the frontman of Mumford & Sons (and likely the only member general audiences can name), but the band's new music video for "Whispers in the Dark" also highlights band members Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane, as they apply fake beards, run in slow-motion, and explore a ship. "Whispers in the Dark" shows each member of the band in his own corner of the video, getting ready for a Mumford & Sons gig. The four meet up at the end of the clip as the corners come together.
"Whispers in the Dark" is a single off of Mumford & Sons' latest album, "Babel," which took home the Grammy award for Album of the Year. Released in September, "Babel" also produced hits such as "I Will Wait" and "Lover of the Light."

The new clip for Mumford & Sons's "Whispers in the Dark" begins with intrigue. What's happening? Is the band broken up? Are they starring in some kind of tribute to The Usual Suspects?

Marcus motorcycles, the hunky one drives a car and does some slo-mo running, the tall one takes photos and walks on a boat, and the banjo one gets his beard prosthetically applied — sacrilege! It's less of a narrative than the Idris Elba video, but also less cryptic. »
