Why do we like this?

I clearly listen to too much new music. There was a day and time when Oh Wonder bedazzled me. Any new song out of their camp blew my socks off, and I looked forward to their regular "first-of-the-month" releases with eager anticipation.

Then surprise!, five days ago the band uploaded a new track called "Ultralife" to their YouTube channel. And I listened - but all that surprise and excitement seemed to have disappeared. I can't quite put my finger on it, but this song just... well... I feel like maybe it's moving too much in the whole Mumford & Sons direction, perhaps in an effort to be more poppy and approachable?

I'm probably over-analyzing it. They likely just want to make music they like. At least, I'd like to hope that's what's going on. The cynic in me wouldn't be surprise if some major label influence told them they ought to be more poppy.
