Of Monsters and men

Of Monsters and men are a young Icelandic band, who announced this week that they have signed a deal with universal records. It was the conclusion of weeks of speculation and hype, concluding with none other than the rolling stone magazine touting them as the new arcade fire.

Their good fortune seemed to take off with this recording for a Seattle radio station, at Iceland Airwaves 2010.

Whether it will lead to fame, fortune, obscurity or faded hype, who knows. But the cliche about Iceland producing a disproportionate amount of good music for a country of only 320,000 is most certainly confirmed on this occasion.
