Of Monsters And Men - Video Interview
Year 2012Genre(s) Alternative
Hailing from Iceland, indie folk artists Of Monsters And Men were one of the most highly anticipated acts for Leeds Festival's Radio 1 stage this year and that's not surprising; with their debut album 'My Head Is an Animal' sailing to number one in the US alternative charts and a 2011 debut single certified Platinum in Germany, they truly have become a an immediate success following their win of a battle of the bands competition in their home country. Their album certainly made an impression on listeners across Europe and America with its beautiful harmonies and traditional 'pop' song writing and, as we have highlighted in our recent review, its 'animalistic' feel that is 'not in a primitive and angry sense; more as a natural fantasy of the outdoors and the life it withholds.'
We chatted with Nana at Leeds Festival last weekend to see what they made of their newfound popularity, the art of storytelling and the unorthodox methods they used to record their debut album.
