Iceland Flyaway Spotlight: Of Monsters & Men

photo by Jim Bennett

One of Iceland’s most popular musical exports, after Björk and Sigur Rós, has to be Of Monsters & Men. We were fortunate to discover this talented young band early and capture them on video as they practiced for their first ever performance at Icelandic Airwaves Festival back in 2010. They’ve since become international superstars, but it all started for them back in that cramped Reykjavik living room, one like so many others where magic happens every day, where new bands shape their own unique sounds and mold their own dreams of becoming the next big thing, or at least the next band you really need to hear.

KEXP and Iceland Air want you to discover bands like (and unlike) Of Monsters & Men for yourself. We’re sending one lucky winner and a guest to Iceland Airwaves 2014. Time is running up, so find out more about our Iceland Airwaves Flyaway Extravaganza and enter to win now!

Then, watch the history we’ve made together with Of Monsters & Men at Iceland Airwaves over the last few years:
