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.
