Sure. We posted that just a couple of days ago, but here it is again.
Happy Earth day! In celebration, here’s a version of Little Talks we did at the Stopp - Let’s Protect the Park fundraiser in Reykjavík last month. Enjoy and let’s respect our Mother Earth!
"The band mentioned they didn’t want a happy ending, and we couldn’t have agreed more. It’s rare for a band to want to push the boundaries and create something unexpected. Nanna told us she was a sucker for unresolved endings, so a cliffhanger was born!" ~WeWereMonkeys.
Good question. We decided to use this opportunity to quiz all six admins about their favorite OMAM lyrics. It turned out that most of us couldn’t or wouldn’t narrow it down to just one favorite, so we ended up with 14 lines/passages. Half of those were mentioned by more than one admin. Here they are:
Nominated by three admins:
"Alone we traveled, armed with nothing but a shadow" (Mountain Sound)
Nominated by two admins:
"You’re gone, gone, gone away, I watched you disappear - All that’s left is a ghost of you" (Little Talks)
"A thousand silhouettes, dancing on my chest - No matter where I sleep, you are haunting me" (Silhouettes)
"Some had scars and some had scratches, it made me wonder about their past - And as I looked around, I began to notice that we were nothing like the rest" (Mountain Sound)
"The books that I keep by my bed are full of your stories - That I drew up from a little dream of mine, a little nightmare of yours" (Sloom)
