Icelandic outfit Of Monsters and Men have made a bold return with new single ‘Alligator’. Their first release since 2015’s Beneath The Skin, this new cut sees the band incorporating heavier guitars and grislier production techniques as Nanna’s vocal is distorted beneath layers of snarling instrumentals. The lyrical content remains as whimsical as previous work, yet the pounding drum beats and agitated delivery brings a new anthemic quality to their music.

Speaking on the song, the band commented "We are so excited about Alligator, the first release from our upcoming album. The song very much speaks to the excitement and energy that we feel about being back. We can’t wait to share more music and see everyone again.”

Co-produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Chvrches), ‘Alligator’ is a welcome return from the much loved Scandi outfit and promises an exciting new direction for this musical project.
