Dirty Paws

Yesterday while looking at one of my favourite music blogs Rarities B-sides & Other Stuff. I Heard this band, Of Monsters and Men, So in the last twenty four hours I Have listened to every song I can find on youtube. I can definitely say you will be hearing more from these guys, they are instantly catchy, with some folk from the Fleet Foxes vein, but also bringing in some of the bigger sounds reminding me of parts of Arcade Fire. The band are from Iceland and this has lent itself to the songwriting, and having never been to Iceland and knowing very little about it, bar that its cold and volcanic, I feel like this music has a good sense of the country & its folklore. The vocals are shared by a female and male vocalist and they intersect wonderfully, singing with there own accents which give the vocals a very unique quality.

They also have a fantastic video for lead single Little Talks. Great animation capturing the vibe of this band perfectly.
