It started with Little Talks and it continues with King And Lionheart – Of Monsters and Men don’t have music videos, they have visual art. Following the same good vs. evil fantasy driven theme, the video for King and Lionheart is dark and beautiful, like something taken straight out of a story book.
A cross between Game of Thrones and Avatar, the video is whimsical and adventurous as it accompanies Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar “Raggi” Þórhallsson’s harmonious vocals. Unlike many current artists, who are going down the minimalist route with their music videos, Of Monsters and Men go for rich visuals and extravagant narratives to suit their lyrics. Watching this is like watching a feature film you’d expect to see at the cinema. Of Monsters and Men should be making movies!
I don’t know about anyone else but I’m desperate to know what happened in the end!
