Premiere: Of Monsters and Men Show Playful Side on 'Mountain Sound'

Icelandic folk band follows breakout single with endearing clip

By |

With their touching, earnest folk sound, Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men scored a breakout hit with "Little Talks" late last year, leading to a record deal with Universal and hitting chart heights unreached by any Icelander since Björk. The group offers an upbeat, barreling follow-up with "Mountain Sound." A new video for the song finds the band setting up, performing, connecting with fans and clowning around at a hometown performance in Reykjavik, showing their heartfelt endearing qualities aren't limited to just sound and stage.

"Mountain Sound" is on Of Monsters and Men's debut album, My Head Is an Animal.
