Of Monsters And Men Biography

Of Monsters and Men are an amiable group of day dreamers who craft epic pop songs inspired by their homeland, fairy tales and personal history. But last year, the normally mild-mannered six pack transformed into rock stars after stomping out their competition during Músiktilraunir, a yearly battle of the bands in their native Iceland.

Starting life as the solo project of Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, the band quickly grew with the additions of friends Ragnar "Raggi" Þórhallsson (co-singer/guitarist), Brynjar Leifsson (guitarist), Arnar Rósenkranz Hilmarsson (drummer), Árni Guðjónsson (piano/accordion player) and Kristján Páll Kristjánsson (bassist). Following the battle of the bands win, the new group earned a slot on the influential Iceland Airwaves festival and were one of THE
breakthrough acts at this year's SXSW.

Of Monsters and Men's debut album My Head is an Animal has already enjoyed huge success in Iceland and the US, and is set for release in the UK this Summer on Island Records.
