Musical Mondays: Mountain Sound by Of Monsters and Men

my head is an animal coverThe song Mountain Sound comes from the band Of Monsters and Men, whose members are originally from Iceland. They became more internationally well-known after they won a big battle of the bands back in their own country. Their music has a wonderful folk music feel to it, which is heightened by the trumpet, accordion, and the fact that they have two main singers, a male and a female. Their voices compliment each other very well, and when the entire band sings the music seems to really come alive. This song is from their album called My Head Is An Animal (shown to the right) which was released on April 3, 2012. My favorite part of this song is the second verse, which is as follows:

“Some hid scars and some hid scratches

It made me wonder about their past

And as I looked around, I began to notice

That we were nothing like the rest.”

Give this song a listen!
