The Icelandic band, Of Monsters And Men, are my Spotify flavour of the week and we were lucky enough to catch them in Stockholm last Friday. The gig was held at Debaser – a dark, grungey, low slung and intimate bar tucked under a bridge. As soon as they came on stage, the two hour wait in the rain seemed undoubtedly worth it. I ended up chatting to them afterwards and the unsuspecting creatures had no idea that their gig was free, or that there were at least 300 metres worth of humans that couldn’t get in. I was thiiis close to jumping in their van and joining their next gig in Norway as a groupie.
One of the unsuspecting guitarists jumped into the middle of the crowd to play the last song.
Fortunately I will be able to see them again for Round Two at Laneway Festival next January! This song will ease the long wait..
