Of Monsters and Men is a five-member, English-language,[2] indie folk-pop[3][4] band from Reykjavík,[5] Iceland, formed in 2010. The members are lead singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, co-singer-guitarist Ragnar "Raggi" Ţórhallsson, guitarist Brynjar Leifsson, drummer Arnar Rósenkranz Hilmarsson and bassist Kristján Páll Kristjánsson.[6][7] The band won the Músíktilraunir in 2010, an annual battle of the bands competition in Iceland.[8] In 2011, Of Monsters and Men released an EP titled Into the Woods. The band's 2011 debut album My Head Is an Animal, reached the No.1 position in Australia, Iceland, Ireland and the U.S. Rock and Alternative Charts, while peaking at No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart, No. 3 in the UK, and Top 20 of most European charts and Canada. Its lead single "Little Talks" was an international success, reaching the Top 10 in most music charts in Europe, including No. 1 in Ireland and Iceland, and No. 1 on U.S. Alternative Songs.

Of Monsters and Men won the 2013 European Border Breakers Awards.

This such a likable band! I like their dynamic and uplifted style, their music sounds very nature and travel-inspired. Would like to hear them live.

I've never had a chance to dig into anything else they've done, and I didn't read all the OP but when I clicked the video I thought I recognized the vocals. I hear "Little Talks" on the alt stations around here all the time.

What a great band, I personally love Organs and Winter Sound!
Sometimes they remind me of Arcade Fire, really nice
