Last week I mentioned that a lot of music from yester-year was far superior to the music of today. While as a generality I believe that is true, there are some excellent and very talented bands out there today with some great songwriting behind them. Of Monsters and Men is one such promising new band. The group from Iceland has a very folksy, southern feel on their hit Mountain Sound. It's their second hit in North America after their "debut" hit Little Talks. Both songs are quite catchy.
Is it just me or does the female lead singer, Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir (yes, I just typed that) sound similar to Bjork?
As an added bonus, here's Little Talks as well.
