Of Monsters and Men have signed to Universal
October 19th, 2011 | News
Of Monsters and Men have signed to Universal Music Group for the world outside of Iceland. Plans to release their debut album, My Head Is An Animal (released in Iceland in September 2011) outside of Iceland in early 2012 are in the works. OM&M are the 2010 winners of Músiktilraunir (Iceland’s nationwide Battle of the Bands competition, and their name is apt and fitting to their lyrics, which mostly comprise stories of all kinds of monsters, both fictional and human.
While they used to be mainly an acoustic band, OM&M has taken their sound to a different level with the addition of bass, drums, piano and the accordion. Creating a bigger sound, the six piece indie/folk band has already had some success with their song “Little Talks”, which has spread over the world wide web like wildfire after the Seattle based radio station “Kexp” recorded it live during Iceland Airwaves 2010.
We wish the band all the success in the world with this fantastic major label deal.
