Watch: Of Monsters and Men – “Little Talks”

22 Mar

Given the number of views this video has had already on YouTube, and the fact that this Icelandic band are so hot right now they are selling out every venue they have been booked in, the chances are you may have already seen this. It’s worth watching again though if you have. Its bonkers brilliance is worthy of multiple viewing in fact.

Like a weird hybrid Monty Python animation made into a Final Fantsay style video game, it tells the tale of, well, who knows? The band are on some kind of quest, they uncover a colourful magical being who comes to their aid in times of danger and ultimately joins some larger magical entity like a mental Power Ranger thing. God it’s good. The track is pretty amazeballs as well. Totally worth getting more than a little excited by. It’s so vibrant and bouncy and we just love the horn section and boy/girl duet.

The debut Of Monsters and Men album, My Head Is An Animal (which is already out in Iceland) will be released worldwide in the coming months. Can we have it now please?
