Today*s Star: Of Monsters and Men

When you hear Of Monsters and Men, the song Little Talks probably comes to mind. It should anyway. That little single of theirs became a smash hit overnight. Over 2 million copies of the track were sold in the U.S alone by the beginning of this year. But who are Of Monsters and Men?

They're a six member band from Iceland that got together in 2010. The band consists of 2 guitarists, a trumpet player, bassist, a drummer and an accordionist. OMAM won a battle-of-the-bands competition in 2010 which led them straight to the recording studio to work on an EP. It wasn't until the release of their full-length debut album that they hit big in the States. My Head Is An Animal booms with fun, catchy melodies. Have you heard it? It's available on iTunes where you can listen to clips of their songs.

OMAM have performed a lot over the last 18 months. They hit the stages at a few popular music festivals too: Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, Coachella and Boston Calling <------we gave away tickets to that one!

Their song Dirty Paws is currently being used for the trailer to the upcoming Ben Stiller flick, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." Below is a live version of that song!

**New song from them coming soon! "Silhouettes" will be featured on the soundtrack to Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
