The now-famous Icelandic football chant from Euro 2016 greets Of Monsters and Men as they take to the 6 Music stage at this year’s Latitude, and - unsurprisingly, really - it’s a cacophonous noise that almost drowns out New Order on the Main Stage. Yet, the energy summoned at the start of the band’s time on stage doesn’t let up for the whole set.
While there may be a fairly small crowd assembled for the group’s closing set of the weekend at Latitude 2016, they’re a dedicated bunch: they cheer and chant their way through the band’s hour-long offering.
‘Little Talks’ still gets the biggest reaction - in fact, it erupts into a glorious celebration - and will probably always be their biggest hit, but there’s no denying Of Monsters and Men’s capability in rallying a crowd and putting on a blindingly fun show.
