Recently I have found a band which I really love at the moment. I just can’t get enough. Of Monsters and Men. Their album “My Head is an Animal”, I think is a phenomenon. It is a fine piece of work and I haven’t heard an album as magnificent and catchy in while. Just waiting for it’s realease in the UK!
Anyway, more on this band! Of Monsters and Men are a 6 piece, folk band. Although they are verging on indie. They are from Iceland. They have been described as “Iceland’s Mumford and Sons” , personally I think that they are better. I’ll admit I got a kick out of Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons, however the kick was short-lived, I believe I have fallen in love with Of Monsters and Men. Due to the success of Little Talks in America, they were signed by Universal Music Group, and it is being released worldwide in early 2012. I’m looking forward to it and you should be too!
One thing I love about this band is their dreamy way of singing, they make it sound all so simple while at the same time you know their music is intricate. For that reason I find their music mesmerising and interesting. Some songs are sad others are happy but each one of them are heartfelt. The idea that if you are going to feel an emotion, then it should take over your whole being. I love it. Clearly the musicians behind it are very talented and intelligent in their work.
If this hasn’t sold them to you, I don’t know what will! All I would say is give them a listen, you may be pleasantly surprised!
