“I Will Wait” I Mumford and Sons
4/5 Stars
Mumford and Sons continues their ascent with its new single, showcasing the fantastic intensity and upbeat instrumentals that have been vital to the group’s success. The single errs more on the side of emotionality than excitability, shifting slightly from their traditional approach. Although it may not match the popularity of past songs, “I Will Wait” is still very solid and enjoyable.

“Every Chance We Get We Run” | David Guetta and Alesso ft. Tegan and Sara
2/5 Stars
This new single from the world-famous DJ alternates between smooth female vocals (courtesy of Teganand Sara) and Guetta’s more traditional dance-inducing beats. Altogether the single does not fit into theDJ’s trademark style but uses female vocals in an intriguing way.

“Default” | Atoms for Peace
The first single from all-star group Atoms for Peace (Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Goodrich, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco) has dropped. Their new single, “Default,” sounds a lot like a Radiohead track, with plenty of intricate soundscapes and processed instrumentals. While it may be jarring for those not used to this style, those familiar with Yorke will find this to be an inspiring track.
