After the release of their debut album My Head is an Animal in 2011, Icelandic indie folk group Of Monsters and Men are back with a new single from their upcoming album.
In Crystals – the first release from their new album, Beneath the Skin – it is clear that their unique folk style has not changed over their four years of absence.
Nanna’s vocals have developed and the band have focussed on maintaining the styles explored in their debut album. In the bridge of Crystals, the track has a burst of soulful lyrics accompanied by light guitar riffs that will link to their popular single – Mountain Sound.
The drumming is also commendable, adding to the chant-like feel of a powerful chorus. It is fair to say that Of Monsters and Men are back with the unique style of indie folk we all know and love.
