Of Monsters And Men is a band from Iceland formed in 2010...

This song Little Talks was released in December 2011...

Eighteen months ago and so its not really a new song but its very new to me...

Yesterday was the first time i heard it and its the best song in years...

Listen along with this trippy mind expanding video...

Quote:USA Today described the song as a "monster hit", noting its "galloping chorus" and "reverb-heavy production." According to Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, the song describes two loving people talking past each other and implies one is recently deceased, saying "maybe one person isn't really hearing the other one." The song was inspired by an old house she moved into.

I mean by now theres been so much music released by so many different people that some are bound to sound similar,but accidently or intentionally is another story...

Like George Harrison being sued (and successfully! (i wonder how much cash the judge and or jury got?) by the Shirrrels or the Chiffons for ripping off and copying their song hes so fine,for his,my sweet lord song and like George Harrison would need to intentionally rip off the friggin Shirrels or whoever they were?!

Could you post a song by Mumford And Sons that sounds like Of Monsters And Men?
