Video of the Moment #1805: Of Monsters and Men

By on Friday, 15th May 2015 at 6:00 pm

Icelandic folk-pop quintet Of Monsters and Men have returned with a new single, titled ‘Crystals’, from their forthcoming second LP ‘Beneath the Skin’.  The darkly anthemic track was first accompanied by an abstractly interpretive lyric video, but the band have expanded on their visual expression of the song in the necromantic official video featured below.  Filmed in the band’s native Iceland by directors Arni & Kinski, the video portrays an eerily prismatic tableau of the band members operating a magical Dr. Frankenstein-esque machine.

‘Beneath the Skin’ is due for release on the 8th of June via Island Records.  Previous TGTF coverage of Of Monsters and Men can be found here.
