Formed in Iceland in 2010, Of Monsters and Men are a six-piece indie folk/pop band that in neither filled with monsters nor exclusively made up of men. The members are Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir (vocals/guitar), Ragnar Porhallsson (vocals/guitar), Brynjar Leifsson (guitar), Arnar Rosenkranz Hilmarsson (drums), Arni Guojonsson (keyboards/accordion), Ragnhildur Gunnarsdottir (trumpet), and Kristjan Pall Kristjansson (bass).
They made a splash with their very first album release in North America. 2011’s My Head is an Animal peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Album Chart. The single “Little Talks” was a hit over here and in Europe.
The band played to rave reviews at this year’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival here in Montreal. They are back for another go at music fans in the city.
