Of Monsters and Men
returns with another serving of their tender brand of hyper active folk. "Crystals" is the premiere track off their freshly announced forthcoming album, Beneath The Skin
, set to drop in June. The record will be the groups sophomore effort, and the two-years-in-the-making follow up to 2012's monumental indie debut My Head Is An Animal
, featuring the top 40 radio colossus "Little Talks"
If "Crystals" is any indication, you can let your expectations run sky high for Beneath The Skin
. Highly charged folk with a strong vocal foundation makes for a sturdy sonic frame. It's the sort of musical structure necessary to house the benevolent vulnerability that faithfully puffs out of the Icelandic act's charring and charming smokestack. Listen to "Crystals" below, and watch our desert session with Of Monsters and Men at Coachella:
