Of Monsters and Men, 'Mountain Sound' -- New Song


Icelandic indie folk/indie pop band Of Monsters and Men recently released their second single from their debut studio album, 'My Head Is an Animal.' The single is a follow-up to the highly successful crossover hit, 'Little Talks.'

Of Monsters and Men, known for their innovative, folk-like sound, is made up of six band members. Their music features keyboards, accordions, drums, a bass, multiple guitars, and often dueling vocals. Like 'Little Talks,' Mountain Sound' is upbeat and builds into a sing-a-long chorus, with memorable hooks. The song may not be quite as strong as its predecessor, but 'Mountain Sound' is another song indie fans will definitely want to hear. The song's lyrics mirror its uplifting beat and style, with the narrators wanting to find freedom in a distant land, far from their troubles. The line to take away is the most repeated, and joyously so at the end of the song: "We sleep until the sun goes down."

'My Head Is an Animal' is the most successful album from an Icelandic musical artist in American history, selling 200,000 copies as of July. The band is currently on tour and has performed at large festivals, including Chicago's 'Lollapalooza' in August.
