Once again, the multiplatinum Icelandic phenomenon deliver a provocative and powerful cinematic companion to an equally heartfelt song. Teetering between gorgeous and chilling vignettes, frontwoman Nanna Hilmarsdóttir sings while floating atop a pool.

As blood fills the water and tears fill her eyes, the water eventually mimics her movements, bringing the visual to life in hypnotic fashion as it pays homage to Scandinavian horror classics with an Of Monsters and Men twist.

Regarding the song and video, Nanna commented, “‘Wild Roses’ shows an introverted side to the album and is inspired by what it is like to lean into your sadness. We wanted to capture that feeling in a performance for the music video, while bringing out a bit of uneasiness as well. So, we brought on choreographer Stella Rosenkranz to help create the movements you see. We also knew that we wanted to shoot the video in water with a bit of blood. To achieve this, director Þóra Hilmars immediately came to mind. We had talked about working together for years, and knew she would be perfect for a Scandi horror-inspired music video. The video was shot in a span of 12 hours in a beautiful and eerie swimming pool in Hafnaförður, Iceland, hours before going to the airport and starting our Fever Dream tour. We’re very happy with the outcome and are truly excited to share this with everyone.”

After clinching #1 at AAA Radio and Top 5 At Alternative, the group recently performed their number one anthem “Alligator” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as well as their current single “Wars” that continues to climb as a greatest gainer at both AAA and Alternative radio.

Following its debut at #1 on the Rock Albums Chart, FEVER DREAM also continues to enchant fans live as the band just wrapped up the North American leg of The FEVER DREAM Tour and continue onto its UK/Europe run with a sold-out Show in Dublin on October 23rd.

OF
MONSTERS AND MEN
 went
from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011
debut, My Head Is
An Animal
. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also
produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks. The breakthrough
single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history
as “the first song
by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify
, and landed
the band a performance on Saturday
Night Live
. The
group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger GamesThe Walking Dead,
and Beat Bugs, to name a few.
In addition to performing at festivals such as CoachellaLollapaloozaFirefly, and beyond,
they supported Florence
+ the Machine
 on a high-profile arena tour. In the midst
of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath
The Skin
 bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and
the band starred in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the same year.
