The Lumineers - 'Submarines'

As inoffensive as Vernon Kay in a Flora advert

Not entirely sure how, in a post-Mumfords world, I’ve managed to get through the past year unaware of this band. Apparently they’re massive. On the strength of ‘Submarines’, I can see why. Their anodyne, rootsy, Colorado tweeness is as inoffensive as Vernon Kay in a Flora advert. It offends me greatly.
