Of Monsters And Men's singer Nanna Bryndís does not so much walk on water as lie upon it, in Thora Hilmars' video for Wild Roses.  

Nanna performs the song from the centre of a pool, with power over the water surrounding her - it eventually flows in mini spinning vortices around her. Shot at night in an old swimming pool in Iceland, it's a notable performance video which arguably alludes to the Icelandic relationship with water: the nation exists because they have mastered it. 

The track Wild Roses is taken from OMAM’s latest album, Fever Dream.
