Drea’s things (go pop rock), part seven: Of Monsters and Men

“Mountain Sound” by Of Monsters and Men | Finally, a band that’s not exactly pop rock, although it perfectly dovetails with my mindset, and Drea’s, too. We’re all late to Of Monsters and Men – their debut My Head is an Animal was released in Iceland last year, but they only really exploded this year thanks to “Little Talks”. I was elsewhere when the Brits picked them up, leading to the Americans picking them up (which rarely happens), and now, they’re touring the world, and their album is still nowhere to be found in Manila. Next year they’re at the Laneway Festival’s Singapore date, which Drea regrets because she doesn’t have the money. (I have the same regret, because Kimbra will be there. Her live shows are, you know, electric, baby.) So maybe in 2014? Of Monsters and Men may not be there, but whatever. (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
