Today Of Monsters And Men just released their third studio album, Fever Dream. Following singles “Alligator” and “Wild Roses,” the band is celebrating the release with a lyric video for their new song, “Wars.”
In contrast to both the previous two singles, “Wars” doesn’t showcase Nanna Hilmarsdóttir’s vocals. Instead, co-lead vocalist Ragnar Þórhallsson sings here. Raggi comes in strong and instant, his voice characteristically soft. While the verses sound like typical fare for him – comparable of popular indie bands like Bon Iver – his voice grows more loose and fun on the energetic, poppy choruses. By then, it sounds more like Foster The People. “Wars” sounds free and joyful in spite of its lyric about love being a “cruel war.”
The lyric video for “Wars” is, like that for “Wild Roses,” abstract and colorful. We watch as brightly hued liquids fall up and drizzle through a hazy atmosphere. At times it looks like paint, but upside down. At others, it takes on the appearance of planets in space, if more flat and liquid than the globes in our solar system.
Watch the lyric video for “Wars” below:
Along with “Alligator” and “Wild Roses,” “Wars” appears on the new Of Monsters And Men album, Fever Dream, released today. You can stream or download the album from all the major music providers here.
