I know that I am late to the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire party. I am seeing it this Saturday. Don’t kill me! But one thing that the Hunger Games movies have brought us are pretty awesome soundtracks. Both soundtracks, The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have been filled with some of the biggest names in indie music. The first edition gave us tunes from Taylor Swift, The Civil Wars, Jack White, Kid Cudi, Arcade Fire, the Decemberists, and Neko Case, and the most recent soundtrack to the sequel is fully loaded with songs from Coldplay, Sia, The Weeknd, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding, Lorde, Phantogram, and today’s SOTD artists Of Monsters and Men. Iceland’s finest, Of Monsters and Men burst on to the indie scene in 2011 with their debut EP, Into the Woods, and later followed that up with their stellar debut album, My Head is an Animal. The band reached national attention with their breakout hit “Little Talks,” but it’s the harmonies and lead and follow structure of co-singers Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir and Ragnar Porhallsson (what names eh) that get me every time. That duo is back in full effect with “Silhouettes” from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The song is beautiful and their two voices shine bright on this track. Check out “Silhouettes” and go support J Law and see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Critics are saying it’s the best sequel since Empire Strikes Back, and those are big shoes to fill!
