Of Monsters & Men – Visitor (Muna Remix) [Official Audio] (Video)

“-Muna- please us with his sound vision on -Of Monsters & Men- Visitor track, released on Republic Records. Keeping the identity of the original version and expanding the vision under his own signature style, through a minimal solid mix and wonderful story telling layering, unfolding all the warmness of vocals through a lush of harmonies. A beautiful remix!”

Multiplatinum Icelandic quintet Of Monsters and Men announce they have teamed up with American indie pop band MUNA for the official remix of “Visitor.” The remix brings a different perspective to the track while retaining it’s enchanting sonic vibe.

Released last month “Visitor” has already been making a strong impression with nearly 4 million global streams, capturing #1 Greatest Gainer at radio coming in at #16 at Triple A and #30 at Alternative. The success adds to the band’s nearly 4.6 billion global streams across their impressive catalogue and “Visitor” is the first song off a new body of work coming at the top of 2021 in celebration of the group’s tenth anniversary together.

Regarding “Visitor,” co-lead vocalist and guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir commented, “‘Visitor’ is a song about disconnection and being on the fringe of change, seeing everything you once knew disappear, and finding yourself in the role of the visitor. It was written and recorded when the world was a completely different place, but the post-apocalyptic world of the video seems fitting. We shot the music video for it in Iceland in the freezing cold of February right before the pandemic hit. We are so very excited to finally share this song with you. Much love.”

In the video, the beautiful landscape of the band’s home country takes center stage as it was shot in Iceland by local director Thora Hilmars. The video sees the band performing in an icy airplane hanger as Nanna and the band perform to daybreak while the song’s emotionally charged hooks talk about life in transition “Just like my parents’ house, I’ve become a visitor.”

The single sets the stage for 2021 when the band will celebrate 10 years of being together with more new music and other exciting content for fans. It brings everything full circle for the band with a bold new body of work.

In 2019, the group welcomed listeners into the embrace of their critically acclaimed third full-length album, FEVER DREAM. Not only did the record tally 80 million-plus total streams to date, but it also attracted acclaim from Billboard, NPR, The Line of Best Fit, Independent, Paste, and more. Clash Magazine claimed, “The songs also have an emotional content to them that is hard to ignore.” Q Magazine praised it as “a dizzying rush of exuberance and emotion…their transformation into an arena-ready pop beast is complete.” Notably, the single “Alligator” made history by completing “their quickest climb to #1 on the Adult Alternative Songs Airplay Chart,” as reported by Billboard. In addition to selling out dates coast-to-coast on the FEVER DREAM Tour, the group delivered rapturous television performances on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks.” The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as “the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify,” and landed the band a performance on Saturday Night Live. The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In addition to performing at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly, and beyond, they supported Florence + the Machine on a high-profile arena tour. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath The Skin bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band starred in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the same year.

As soon as you get the opportunity to run you do it. You’re too sensitive to exist and all you wanna do is to feel love but all you do is push it away.

Mightelle – Wrurf (Spotify)

“A new entry on electro – pop genre is coming from the Scandinavic north to portray a more inner version of such a popular music listening of our times, blowing a fresh breeze as autumn gradually setting in.”

WRURF is an experimental synthpop track built on neatly designed kicks, synthesizers, and vocal manipulations. The track opens with a flirting game between the kick and synth before Mightelle’s deep and soft voice carefully leads the listener towards a hectic, percussive, and redemptive chorus.“WRURF is about confidently leaving a situation - especially when no one is sad to see you go. The track is inspired by a former relationship. I was SO confused. He said one thing and did something else and I completely lost myself. It sounds cliche, but along the lines, it dawned on me that is was an ‘actions speak louder than words’ kinda thing.”Mightelle is the danish producer, singer and songwriter, Mai Skjødt. With contrasting electronic productions, heartfelt lyrics and forceful beats whirled in loads of synths, she lures you into a thoughtful sensitivity and shines a light where anger, doubt and love intertwine in the obscure nooks and knots of our thoughts. Partly rooted in synth-pop and partly in a fantasy world where everything is possible, she creates songs that challenge the usual genres and that have so many edges that you might as well give up counting them. She draws inspiration from artists such as FKA Twigs, Lorde, Sevdaliza but mostly from her diary, dreams and nightmares.

Indigo Maya – Angel of Annihilation (Spotify)

“Angel of Annihilation from Indigo Maya is a fine indie electronica with wonderful post rock influences and solid groove. Her signature vocals sit perfect on the mix and gives you an epic feeling overall, an elecrop pop with lot of diversity.”

Angel of Annihilation is a genre-bending Electropop/Industrial Metal song depicting the day-to-day disorientation that comes with chronic pain, and the constant fluctuation between haziness in waking life and the raw carnage of nightmares more vivid than life itself. In these nightmares, the angel of annihilation is both Indigo's alter ego and her illness made manifest, a reckless warlord inspired by sumerian mythology and demonology. Indigo depicts the duality of her daytime and nighttime lives by jumping between dreamy verses with erratic, glitchy drums and sharp, chaotic choruses driven by layers of harsh synths and thrasher guitars.
