Watch Tomas Lemarquis of 'X-Men Apocalypse' Star in Latest Lyric Video From Of Monsters and Men
The Icelandic band is featuring actors from its home country in a series of clips.
Of Monsters and Men is reinventing the lyric video, continuing with the new visual for “Slow Life,” starring Icelandic actor Tomas Lemarquis and premiering on Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter exclusively.
The clip is one of a series of lyric videos for songs from the Icelandic indie rockers' second studio album, Beneath the Skin, all starring actors from their home country. The band chose Lemarquis — whose movies include X-Men: Apocalypse and 3 Days to Kill — to star in “Slow Life” because of his energy.
"We knew from the beginning of this lyric video project that we wanted to work with Tomas,” lead vocalist and guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdottir tells Billboard in a statement. “We felt that he had the sort of raw energy that we wanted for 'Slow Life.' Working together was a great experience. Tomas is a hugely talented actor.”
The “Slow Life” video features Lemarquis lip-syncing to the single. Of Monsters and Men recently featured Icelandic actor Olafur Darri Olafsson — from True Detective and Icelandic drama Trapped — for its “Winter Sound” lyric video.
