Booklet
My Head Is an Animal, het debuutalbum van Of Monsters and Men uit 2012. De groep brengt hierop akoestische altrock ten gehore van de twee singer-songwriters/gitaristen Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdóttir en Ragnar "Raggi" Þórhallsson. Het album toont ook de grootse populaire stijl van het zeskoppige ensemble, met een knik naar gepassioneerde folkrock en gelaagde, introspectieve momenten, die vergelijkingen oproept met tijdgenoten Arcade Fire, Angus & Julia Stone en Mumford & Sons. My Head Is an Animal is slim in elkaar gezet en staat vol melancholische teksten en stille wanhopige romantiek. Het zou elke fan van zoete onschuldige folkrock – zowel man als monster – moeten aanspreken. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Hi-Res
Fever dream: You’re lying in bed with a temperature, sick as a dog. Every time you close your eyes, neurons start firing like coke and mentos in a bottle. Hallucinations, as fleeting as they are convincing, threaten to blur the line between what’s real, and what isn’t. Fever Dream delivers on that promise, partly due to Of Monsters and Men’s new writing process. Instead of creating music as a band, from the bare-bones guitar-vocals structures which had previously driven their folk-pop style, Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar Þórhallsson each holed themselves up to write on computers – separately from the other band members. This digital process was the result of Nanna’s observations on gender roles in the music industry: an overwhelming majority of producers are men. Why couldn’t she learn to produce her own music as well?The theme of emancipation, and how to highlight women’s contribution to the aforementioned music industry is central to the record. Starting with Alligator, which reads as an ode to feminine power. Nanna’s voice is like a beast in a cage, looking for an exit – until she erupts on a blistering breakdown, led by the Arnar Rósenkranz Hilmarsson (drums) + Kristján Páll Kristjánsson (bass) rhythm section. On other tracks such as Wild Roses, she tackles vulnerability, through pastoral images that are reminiscent of Icelandic folklore. And despite the separate writing processes, there’s a fair amount of coherence between Ragnar and Nanna’s songs: their work on vocal harmonization on Under a Dome leads to a psychedelic synthesis, like two streams merging and parting in unexpected ways. The male tenor’s tendency for melancholy and thoughtfulness is a wonderful contrast to his partner’s determined, energetic intonation. It’s often said that a band’s third album is key in any band’s career – Fever Dream doesn’t let up to this rule. Their transition towards more overtly contemporary sounds doesn’t mean they’ve sold their souls to the devil – rather, a change was necessary in order to accommodate the new themes being covered. A powerful, convincing record. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Met de single "Little Talks" van het debuutalbum My Head Is An Animal scoort de IJslandse band Of Monsters and Men in 2011 zowel in eigen land als daar buiten een dikke hit. Vier jaar later verschijnt het tweede album Beneath The Skin, dat opnieuw voorziet in gelaagde indiepop-songs met een vleugje folk. Voor de vocalen tekenen om beurten zangeres Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir en zanger Ragnar Þórhallsson. © TiVo
