Of Monsters and Men is an amiable group of day dreamers who craft folkie pop songs. But the normally mild-mannered six pack—who’s releasing their EP, Into the Woods, transformed into total rock stars after stomping out their competition during Músiktilraunir, a yearly battle of the bands in their native Iceland. The band's name is apt and fitting to their lyrics, which mostly comprise stories of all kinds of monsters, both fictional and human.
By the summer of 2011 “Little Talks” hit No. 1 in the band’s native country, and “people around the world seemed to be listening to us,” marvels Raggi. The band was asked to perform again at Iceland Airwaves 2011, where KEXP then anointed the group as “easily the most buzzed about band.” Though their reach is growing broader, the group’s appeal has remained distinct: Their music is as fantastical as it is pretty.
In march of 2010, Of Monsters and Men was complete. They played their first gig with new member Arnar Rósenkranz who joined his friend Ragnar (Mussi), electric guitarplayer Brynjar and singer and guitarist Nanna Bryndís.
The band's sound is pure and almost entirely acoustic, except for one electric guitar, drums are usually absent adding to the softer side along with vocal harmonies and glockenspiels.
The band made a successful trip to The Netherlands in late summer of 2010 playing at a couple of festivals, making new friends and memories getting great responses after every show.
