You might recognize the strums of the first song featured. That would be “Dirty Paws“, which kicked off last year’s Of Monsters And Men debut album.

Gonzalez you might know from is touching cover of The Knife‘s “Heartbeats“, or his work with indie-darling band Junip.

Word is that Gonzalez has his fingerprints all over the Walter Mitty soundtrack, which is exciting news given “Step Out”.
