Music Video Monday! Of Monsters and Men: "Little Talks"

I was driving to the salt mines the other morning and a great tune on the radio piqued my interest. “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men was that song.

Now I know I'm probably behind the curve here - the rest of the blog was already well aware of the Icelandic band and the song in question. But dammit if this isn't a great tune and today I thought I’d share it and its unique video with you lucky folks.

Let me give you a little taste of what’s to come: the video starts with the band members as steampunkish air pirates cruising around in their own dirigible when a meteor swooshes by. The band investigates the fallen space rock in time to meet lead singer/alien goddess Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir as she explodes out of the meteorite. Shortly after Super Nanna joins the band on their adventure, a giant, two-headed bird is like, “F*ck dirigibles!” and attacks the band. Super Nanna makes quick work of the bird but the damage to the band’s vessel is done. The group continues on their adventure on foot, only to encounter more ferocious beasts.

Side note - this is essentially the story of how T, Pat, Nick, and I met and formed this blog.

I love the animation and the contrast between the black and white and colors in this video. After checking it out below, why not watch the live performance of “Little Talks” that follows? Admit it, you’re curious about what Super Nanna looks like in real life...

Let me know what you think of the video!
