Mumford & Sons are known for their banjo-heavy, indie-folk sound, but going forward they might be switching things up. Lead singer Marcus Mumford recently shared with Style Magazine that their next album might contain synthesizers and electric guitars.

Keyboardist Ben Lovett explained, "It's dangerous for us to talk about what we've been discussing for the third album, but we do have greater ambitions not to just stay within certain sonic confines...We're not just going to be the band that stands for folk music or organic music."

Folk music is what put Mumford & Sons on the charts, and it's always risky to completely change your sound after your fans are accustomed to it, but stagnation isn't an option for bands that want to make a lasting impact. What do you think? Should they go electronic and put synthesizers on their next album?

    The question shoulda read: "Do you think Mumford & Sons should alienate their fanbase?"

    If they do maybe one or two electronic songs but keep the rest the same then that's okay.

    Their fans like them for their "banjo-heavy, indie-folk sound."

    Don't fix what isn't broken.

    Mumford and Sons rock with their sound as is!! Sure trying new things may be fun, but I hope they won't lose any of their originality!

    Every band ends up doing that and it's so sad. I like electronic music but folk rock doesn't need to go electronic.

    If it works don't mess with it. Try releasing a single with the other sound. Go from there.

    If they made a name for themselves with acoustic / electric instruments,
    then they ought to stick with the same.

    As long as they still play instruments, sure. I love them and I love music, especially electric guitar. Sounds good to me. I hope they're not heavy on the synthesizer.
