“Alligator”is the first single from OMAM’s upcoming album FEVER DREAM.  On the empowering anthem Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdóttir, writer and co-vocalist reflects “The song is a mix of many different emotions that come together to create a confusing chaotic state. We wanted the song to feel like a train that keeps going, like an alligator that is rugged and heavy and charges at you. The lyrics tell a story of being completely lost in a “fever dream” state and embracing the chaos that comes with it. It’s a song that embraces femininity and the feeling of being vulnerable yet strong, because ultimately, that is the same thing.”

FEVER DREAMwas co-produced by Rich Costey (MUSE, Vampire Weekend, Chvrches) and is the band’s third studio album.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks.” The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as “the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify,and landed the band a performance onSaturday Night Live.The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath The Skinbowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band starred in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thronesin the same year.
