Amoeba Review

04/03/2012

Of Monsters and Men tap into that same sweet spot of emotional indie pop punctuated by big choruses shared with Mumford & Sons, The Head & the Heart and Frightened Rabbit. But what sets them apart is a sense that their brand of joyful incantations set to marching acoustic rock feels totally organic, like it’s just a group of friends getting together to sing songs they wrote in their parents’ basements — part of that may be the isolation of their native Iceland, and the other part is the unbridled glee from girl and guy singers Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar Þórhallsson, who make every lyric sound like a secret they can’t wait to shout to the heavens. While they usually occupy jaunty, singalong territory, where you feel like you’re part of their gang, on songs like “King and Lionheart” (“You’re my king and I’m your lionheart”) and “Mountain Sound” (“We sleep until the sun goes down”), check out “Slow and Steady,” where Hilmarsdóttir makes like Cyndi Lauper singing “Time After Time” under a cold Icelandic moon.
