Of all of my many chats backstage last night at Not So Silent Night, I gotta say the most interesting soundbyte I got was “I used to be in a Ghost Club.” That came courtesy of Nanna from Of Monsters and Men.

Prep for NSSN with Last Year's Backstage Interviews

It's a bit cliche to talk about how a year has flown by, but 2019 did just that.
