7digital What we said: For a country with a population shy of 350k, Iceland certainly punches above its weight in terms of musical talent. Having already brought us The Sugarcubes, Sigur Rós and Múm, the nation of over-achievers now kindly proffers Of Monsters and Men, a Garður-formed outfit who’ve already won the hearts of America. Judging by their debut album, conquering our shores should prove plain-sailing. My Head Is An Animal finds the six-piece traversing varied sonic terrain with consummate ease, referencing the spirit-stirring cacophony of Arcade Fire on ‘Six Weeks’, the fireside folk of Lisa Hannigan on ‘Love Love Love’ and the tender boy-girl vocal interplay of The xx on ‘Yellow Light’.
