In the video directed by Arni & Kinski and shot in Iceland the band performs the enigmatic and entrancing anthem amidst a breathtaking and intricate backdrop.

?Crystals? continues to shine for OF MONSTERS AND MEN. Since its VEVO debut, the equally stunning lyric video has amassed over 2.5 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN have come a long way from their native Iceland.

Since then, the group have delivered rapturous performances at festivals such as?Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, Osheaga, Glastonbury, Readingand Leeds, Pukkelpop, and Splendour in the Grass as well as at countless sold out headline shows the world over. They have charmed TV audiences with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Graham Norton Show, and Saturday Night Live.
