Musical Monday – “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men
It’s folksy, it’s Icelandic, and it’s pretty good.
I’m not sure I’ll love it forever, but for now, I keep coming back to this song every few days.
The pairing of the two lead singers is an amazing move – they are both very strong, and this song really shows that. When they sing in tandem is when the song is at its high points.
The video has a nice black-and-white contrast with some brilliant colors. I like how the sailors walk in time to the music. I love how the monster shouts in time with the “Hey!” from the song (around 1:50 in).
Other than that, this video is insane and I don’t understand it. I like it though. Neat style, good pacing, excellent visuals.
