OF MONSTERS AND MEN

Into the Woods EP

Of Monsters and Men is an amiable group of day dreamers who craft folkie pop songs. But last year, the normally mild-mannered six pack—who’s releasing their EP, Into the Woods, on December 20—transformed into total rock stars after stomping out their competition during Músiktilraunir, a yearly battle of the bands in ...

This is a highly addictive album that has been on repeat in my car for over a week now. The delicious harmonies created by the male and female leads conjure up flavours of the Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire and create an ethereal feel to this fine debut. If you like any of the above then this is well worth checking out.

Highlights include the singles `Dirty Paws' and `Little Talks' and the band is definitely at their best when in full folk flow (or flowk as I will now call it). That is not to say that the slower, more introspective songs are not interesting or well crafted. Indeed, the song 'Love Love Love' with the line `you love, love, love when you know I can't love,' hints at a darker side to the band's writing and is a welcome contrast on this generally upbeat and pop-fuelled album.

All in all this is a fine debut. I am just disappointed that I missed them live in London recently. Ah well, I'm sure they will be touring on the shores of this green isle again in the near future. Here's hoping!

OMAM is one of those rare albums buried deep beneath the thousands of offerings that come into the charts yearly. In one sense I am glad the band hasn't yet reached acclaimed status in the UK as finding it alone is worth more than any chart position.

It's one of those albums that can be played in 15 years from now and never gets old, fans of Neutral Milk Hotel and Sigur Ros will instantly connect to this band.

Nice to hear something different - the music world is VERY samey so individuality is a great thing and this band is very enjoyable for a couple of listens. Lovely interplay between instruments with trumpet lifts. Much better live, see youtube "Of Monsters and Men- Coachella (full set)" , no doubt will be Glastonbury's 2013 surprise best band.

Regretfully once the newness wears off... sorry but the songs are not actually that good. Phil Spectre-esque production swamps out any individuality and the fascinating interplay between musicians is lost. kinda Run-Rig, a bit Evanescence, Melys but without the bite.

Be interesting to see if they can pick it up and do a second CD.

I heard this band on Dermot O'leary's show on Radio 2, and first play of 'Dirty Paws' had me hooked. That was enough to make me want the whole album, and honestly there is not one duff track on it. It's a lovely refreshing sound and a bit like Mumford & Sons. Definitely worth a punt.

A varied but always absorbing album. Some beautifully haunting tracks and some up beat, that work well as an overall album

I first heard of 'Of Monsters and Men' following the announcement of the Reading & Leeds 2012 line-up and gave them a listen and was instantly hooked on their album. 'Dirty Paws', being the first song on the album, had me hooked as it compares it to Arcade Fire with other influences apparent throughout the rest of the record including Mumford and Sons and Sigur Ros. Despite this, they manage to create their own unique sound with Nanna and Ragnar's vocals being terrific all throughout. I'd pick out a few favourites but the whole album is just brilliant.

They're also a fantastic live band as proven at Leeds Festival and will probably become very popular in the future.

It's so refreshing to hear these guys being played out on the radio and seeing them in the charts as opposed to Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and all the other trash that is 'popular' these days.

5/5

I bought this having down loaded the freebie track 6 weeks ago from iTunes and now I can,t stop playing it. Every track is different and for me definately one of my favourite albums of the year, so far. There is so much manufactured rubbish around it's great to discover something that is genuinely original and a joy to listen to. I looked to see if any other albums from them were available but unfortunately this seems to be the first, looking forward to the next !

Am enjoying the current wave of upbeat folk and Of Monsters & Men is a great band with good camaradarie that comes through in their songs. Have seen them live a few times now and never tire of listening to them or watching them. Love this album - poetic and upbeat. Great songs - all of them! My fave is King and Lionheart but each one is a quality track - that I can personally listen to over and over again. I'm a bit old-school and enjoy listening to an album in its entirety and I can do that with this album without any urge to skip forward. Glad to see they're getting the recognition they deserve.
