Show Review & Photos by Heather Fitzpatrick
After a stint as musical guests on Saturday Night Live performing “Little Talks” and “Mountain Sound” on May 4th, Of Monsters And Men embarked on a world tour and recently played to a sold out crowd at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. They are fairly new to the music scene (beginning as a solo project for lead singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir in 2009) but continue to grow a large fanbase after much success in their homeland of Iceland. In 2010 local radio station KEXP featured them during Iceland Airwaves performing “Little Talks” live from their living room. Of Monsters and Men released their first full-length CD, My Head Is An Animal in April of 2012, and have appeared at numerous music festivals around the globe, including their most recent shows at 2013 Coachella. They will also be featured artists at Bonnaroo Music Festival this June, and continue their world tour through August. Canadian rock band Half Moon Run opened the show.
