Four years ago, I first heard “Little Talks” by Of Monsters And Men. This band from Iceland was a fresh new sound. They released their first album in America the next year. For three long years I had to wait for their next one. The wait was worth it.
One of the songs from their new album, “I Of The Storm”, touched me the first time I heard it. It reminded me of what children with disabilities go through sometimes. The manifestations of their disabilities can leave them isolated and segregated at times. People don’t understand, and these children can be cruel at times. This song is for these children. They develop ghosts in their minds at a young age when they should have friends.
