What is better than one Mumford & Sons? How about 20 Mumford & Sons? Today Mumford and Sons released the official music video for their song "Babel," the title track of the indie-folk group's latest album. The video pans endlessly around a battered yet beautiful hall as the band plays in what looks like every corner of the room. There are so many cut-togethers as the camera spins that you will likely be left wondering — How many members of Mumford & Sons are there again? (Hint: There are 4)

The room they play in is run-down, but otherwise ordinary. And after the group's "Whispers in the Dark" video in which the band tried to show how extraordinary the ordinary can be, it's possible that "ordinary" was precisely the point here.

Of course Mumford & Sons is more than ordinary, and the cycle of black and white video clips melting together in this video are beautiful to watch. Still, we get what they were going for.
