Growing Up In Public
Currently charming the under-crackers off of all and sundry thanks to their chart-bothering single ‘Little Talks’ and debut album My Head Is An Animal, Edwin McFee meets Icelandic indie folksters Of Monsters And Men to talk overnight success, cracking the States and why everyone thinks they’re Irish.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 17 Oct 2012
“As for Ireland, yes, we’d love to headline there,” he concludes. “When we’re on tour a lot of people we meet think that we’re from Ireland, actually. When people talk to us – Americans, especially – they usually ask us if we’re Irish. I don’t know why, but they think our accents are similar. We don’t mind the confusion though. You guys have cool accents and everyone loves the Irish, so we’re happy to be associated with you!”
Of Monsters And Men play the Dublin Olympia on Feburary 21, 2013. My Head Is An Animal is out now
