Preview Of Monsters & Men’s “Silhouettes” From the Catching Fire Soundtrack

A 90 second sample of “Silhouettes,” Of Monsters & Men’s contribution to the Catching Fire soundtrack is now available for your listening pleasure!  MTV revealed the song snippet along with an interview in which the band talks about writing the song.

 

From MTV:

Although they are fans of the “Hunger Games” series, the band chose to write “Silhouettes” not to match any specific scene in the book/film, but more the overall feeling of the second tome in the series, in which Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are cast back into the Hunger Games arena to fight against former victors in the midst of a burgeoning revolution.

“I think that’s stronger than digging into and dissecting the book and writing a song about one scene or something,” þórhallsson said. “It’s more about the feeling of the whole story.”

A bittersweet song that’s delicacy hides a kind of throbbing tension, it’s easy to see how the tune could fit into the film — or serve as the inner monologue running through Katniss’s head as she recalls all the people she has lost in her dystopian world: “A thousand silhouettes/ Dancing on my chest/ No matter where I sleep/ You are haunting me,” sings the band’s Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir over an increasingly tortured beat.

What do you think?  Does it fit in well with the other songs we’ve heard from the soundtrack and the movie in general?  Let us know!
