Of Monsters and Men – My Head Is An Animal (Universal Music Canada)

Comparisons can be a tricky thing to shake. On one hand, it’s a great idea to give potential listeners an idea of who a band sounds like to give people a reference point. In the case of Iceland’s Of Monsters and Men, it is going to be tough to shake comparisons to Canadian heroes Arcade Fire . Of Monsters and Men boast many of the same qualities that have endeared Arcade Fire to the masses: dual male and female vocalists with an affinity for grandiose song arrangements that are powerful, playful and poignant. These guys are definitely worth taking the time to hear for yourself.
