“There’s an old voice in my head that’s holding me back
I tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will all be over, buried with our past
You used to play outside when you were young,
Full of life and full of love
Some days I feel like I am wrong and I am right
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear
‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore
Don’t listen to a word I say
The screams all sound the same”
Of Monsters and Men
Fun song, fun band I’ve recently gotten into. They definitely have trendy elements – a Mumford and Sons like phrasing, female vocalist sings real high, songs are cutesy-but-sad. I like it very much. “Little Talks” was just released as a free single on iTunes.
They kind of remind me of Stars, but they have a little more playful vibe whereas Stars pulls dramatic stops. Also, they’re Icelandic, not Canadian.
This other song – “King and Lionheart” is triumphant to say the least, I’m feeling very me and against the world and lonely lately, so I just might stay inside and listen to this band all day.
