Of Monsters and Men recently (May 14th) released “Empire,” which will be the fifth track on their upcoming album Beneath The Skin planned for a June release. They’ve previously released “Crystals” and “I of the Storm.” In this is the third and final single release prior to the album coming out, we have musical portrait of relationship painted within a lyrical intersection of land and sea. Taken together, these releases point to another amazing album from Of Monsters and Men.
It appears that they love to incorporate images of land and weather in their songs. We saw a comparison to being in the eye of a storm to being in a relationship in “I of the Storm.” In “Empire,” images of weather, sea and land flow over us as we witness the core strength of their relationship. We have nice tight playing among the band that is a bit reminiscent of Coldplay.
