Been meaning to blog about these guys for a while; Of Monsters and Men is a six piece indie folk pop band all the way from Iceland. Their debut album My Head is An Animal released in the US on April 3rd, 2012 is nearly flawless. The cohesive blend of lead singers Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Raggi Þórhallsson soft voices gently lie across a stitching of acoustic threads that build up to create a more complex rock sound. The clarity of their vibrant lyrics and chants are sure to have you singing along.
Maybe you have already heard their first single "Little Talks", here's their performance of it on KEXP radio:
I 'love love love' this song:
Perhaps my favorite tune on the album is "Lakehouse"
