Since winning a local battle of the bands competition less than twelve months ago, Of Monsters And Men’s trajectory to music’s upper echelons has been unstoppable. The band’s debut album ‘My Head Is An Animal’ has already enjoyed huge success in Iceland and Europe. Mirroring that feat in America, ‘My Head Is An Animal’ went to #1 in the iTunes album chart and saw the band appear on Jimmy Fallon in May. Following that performance, Of Monsters And Men have been confirmed to appear on Jay Leno later this month.
‘Little Talks’ follows debut single ‘Dirty Paws’ which enjoyed huge support across the UKs top radio stations. Dusting away years of cultural stereotypes with its rousing feel good lyrics and irresistible melodies and hooks, ‘Little Talks’ is unquestionably the sound of this year’s summer. The video for ‘Little Talks’ has already received over 8 million views and the single shows no signs of stopping there with a packed summer of festival and live performances lined up.
After selling-out their debut London shows in less than two hours, Of Monsters and Men return to the UK in July having sold-out their Scala show in London, whilst also announcing new UK tour dates in August along with appearances at Latitude, Reading and Leeds.
