  • Sigh No More (2009)
  • Bable (2012)
  • Wilder Mind (2015)

Mumford and Sons provide examples of the following tropes:

  • Badass Boast: "You haven't met me, I am the only son!"
  • Destructive Romance: "Unfinished Business"
  • Dying Alone: In "After The Storm", the singer hopes that this won't happen to him.
  • Holding Out for a Hero
    If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy
    I could have won.
  • Never Be Hurt Again: Implied to be the cause of the singer's conflict between his head and his heart in "Winter Winds". Unusually, it's his head that urges letting him love again, and his heart that refuses to.
  • Non-Appearing Title: "Dust Bowl Dance", "Timshel"
  • Prayer Is a Last Resort: In an unusually threatening way:
    "There will come a time I will look in your eye
    You will pray to the god that you've always denied"
  • Refusal of the Call: "Broken Crown"
    Touch my mouth and hold my tongue
    I'll never be your chosen one.
  • Unrequited Love Lasts Forever: "Where Are You Now" is about a man who is still in love with his ex, who's long since gotten over him.
  • You Are Not Alone: "Timshel"
    You are not alone in this
