They got their big break in 2010 when they won Iceland’s annual battle of the bands, Músiktilraunira.
“Of Monsters and Men” is a metaphorical representation of you all starting off as birds (pulled from the title of your solo project, ‘Songbirds’) and later evolving into monsters.
The Fever Dream album was written in a laptop instead of a usual music writing process with guitars, the band, and some notes which they did the first time.

We freaking love music here at Unwrapped, and we adore Of Monsters And Men. In our humble opinion, here are the BEST FIVE SONGS by the legendary Of Monsters And Men (most liked, listened and downloaded songs) across the web!!!

Little Talks

Length: 4:26

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

I don’t like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I’ll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep
It’s keeping me awake
It’s the house telling you to close your eyes
And some days I can’t even dress myself
It’s killing me to see you this way
‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
There’s an old voice in my head
That’s holding me back
Well, tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love
Some days I don’t know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

Dirty Paws

Length: 4:38

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

I don’t like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I’ll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep
It’s keeping me awake
It’s the house telling you to close your eyes
And some days I can’t even dress myself
It’s killing me to see you this way
‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
There’s an old voice in my head
That’s holding me back
Well, tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love
Some days I don’t know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

Mountain Sound

Length: 3:31

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

I heard them calling in the distance
So I packed my things and ran
Far away from all the trouble
I had caused with my two hands
Alone we traveled on with nothing but a shadow
We fled far away
Hold your horses now (we sleep until the sun goes down)
Through the woods, we ran (deep into the mountain sound)
Hold your horses now (we sleep until the sun goes down)
Through the woods, we ran
Some hid scars and some hid scratches
It made me wonder about their past
And as I looked around, I began to notice
That we were nothing like the rest

King and Lionheart

Length: 4:33

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

Taking over this town they should worry,
But these problems aside I think I taught you well.
That we won’t run, and we won’t run, and we won’t run.
And in the winter night sky ships are sailing,
Looking down on these bright blue city lights.
And they won’t wait, and they won’t wait, and they won’t wait.
We’re here to stay, we’re here to stay, we’re here to stay.
Howling ghosts they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you’re a king and I’m a lionheart.
A lionheart.

 

Crystals

Length: 4:03

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

Lost in skies of powdered gold
Caught in clouds of silver ropes
Showered by the empty hopes
As I tumble down, falling fast to the ground
I know I’ll wither, so peel away the bark
‘Cause nothing grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear
Woah
Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Woah
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colors bleed and blend with mine
