Of Monsters and Men is a six-person collective hailing from Iceland and the makers of very catchy folk-pop. The group came together in 2009 when lead singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir began recruiting back-ups for her acoustic solo act. In 2010, Of Monsters and Men gained national fame when they won an annual Icelandic battle of the bands competition, and since then, the buzz has only grown.
