Friday Night Music: Of Monsters and Men

New York has been sweltering under an unrelenting heat wave this entire week, so to keep comfortable, we should all be trying to think cold thoughts. And I’ve got something that might help: hailing from godless Iceland, a video by Of Monsters and Men, an oddly named band whose musical genre is best described as half Scandinavian power metal, half traditional skaldic folksongs. It’s a strange combination, but when it works, it really works.

I also like this group because it’s one of the few times where I can legitimately say I liked a band before they were cool – I found out about this album last summer, and in the last few months, it’s started getting exposure on the radio.
