Mumford and Sons is not the only band to make playing the banjo or harmonica look cool, because there is also Matthew and The Atlas. Trying to make folk rock music popular has been an uphill battle for most, but it takes a little something extra special for a band to make it appeal to a large audience, and there is absolutely no doubt that Matthew And The Atlas have what it takes.
The quintuplet band keeps things simple, and puts the concentration on the music. The band instrumentals consist of banjo, acoustic guitar, drums, keyboard, and accordion. All of them providing some vocals. The harmonies between the vocals are excellent and real, as in they are truly in sync with one another. They have a folk rock sound, which, during their live sets, surrounds you and puts you in a good, relaxed mood; almost like nothing in the world is wrong. They encourage participation too, getting the audience to clap along to keep the beat and add to the sound. Because of the music they play, their shows are very homey, like you are sitting back on the porch enjoying the company of your favorite people.
Not a lot of press on these guys yet. The group resides in London England. Still somewhat in the formative stage. Will they make it big??? Your guess is as good as mine. Nice sound though . . . don't you think?
