When you think of Iceland, you probably picture stunning vistas of shimmering glaciers or the dancing colours of the Northern Lights. Perhaps you’ve even visited the country before and experienced its famous hot springs and towering volcanoes for yourself. While those sights certainly are musts, ask the locals what you should do and you’ll get a whole other set of answers.
Although they’re not official ambassadors for their home and native land, Of Monsters and Men sure are proud of where they come from. That’s right: The band behind the infectious “Little Talks” and “Crystals” hail from the land across the sea and have some unexpected advice for all you prospective tourists out there. So, if you’re planning a trip abroad or just curious to find out what they think is one of the country’s greatest assets, watch on.
Of Monsters and Men’s long-awaited sophomore album, Beneath the Skin, is available on June 9, and you can catch them live this summer at the Squamish Valley Music Festival in British Columbia on August 8.
