Just a week after getting the music video for “Alligator,” Of Monsters And Men are back with another new song, “Wild Roses.” Both songs will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Fever Dream, out in just two weeks.
Over piano chords and a pulsing beat, “Wild Roses” opens with frontwoman Nanna Hilmarsdóttir crooning about authoring her own pain. She paints a vivid picture of spring in bloom – a creak and a bed of leaves amongst the roses growing wildly. But for all the pretty imagery, Nanna’s lyrics describing feeling “out of my mind” and directionless – much like the fever dreaming we heard in “Alligator.”
While the verses are pensive and calm, they hint at more lurking under the surface. The sugary vocals in the background give it extra pop. Then the choruses explode into unrestrained emotion, rolling drums propelling it forward. “Wild Roses” pushes into a different direction than the lead single did, but like its predecessor, it’s instantly appealing.
“Wild Roses” also comes with a lyric video. It’s a remarkable display of bright lava-like liquid oozing against a black background
