The band have won a number of music awards throughout their career, with Sigh No More earning the band the Brit Award for Best British Album in 2011 and six overall Grammy Award nominations. The live performance at the 2011 Grammy ceremony with Bob Dylan and The Avett Brothers led to a surge in popularity for the band in America.

The band is best known for three hit singles: Grammy Award-winning "We Are Young", "Some Nights", and "Carry On". "We Are Young" reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. It also peaked at number one in the United Kingdom. "Some Nights" was released as the album's second single in June 2012, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 chart and becoming Fun's second Top 10 single, as well as the band's second song to reach platinum status in the United States.
On February 10, 2013, Fun won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for "We Are Young".

They practice what they preach; everything is collaborative. Their music draws from a desire to grow together and a sense of security within the group. Like siblings, they fight, make up, and in the end, emerge stronger.
Their collective approach might draw comparisons to Arcade Fire or Broken Social Scene, but their sound finds its place somewhere between the folk-tinged rock n’ roll of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and the youthful upbeat pop of Cults, siphoning the energy of pop punk on a caffeine drip. For them, it starts with having a message and trying to say it in the most uplifting way, inspired equally by the magnetism and energy of San Francisco, as they are by the solitude and serenity of the Big Sur coast.
The Mowgli’s have set out to win your heart and save the world with love, laughter, and hand claps.
Reading and Leeds, Pukkelpop, and Splendour in the Grass as well as at countless sold out headline shows around the world.
They have charmed TV audiences with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Graham Norton Show, and Saturday Night Live. In the midst of it all, they lent the single “Dirty Paws” to a trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, while “Silhouettes” was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Fast forward to 2013 when the group headed back home to Iceland to begin building the framework for their highly anticipated sophomore album. Splitting studio sessions between Iceland and Los Angeles throughout 2014/early 2015, Of Monsters and Men tapped Rich Costey (Muse, Foster The People, Interpol) to co-produce. Eyeing an early summer 2015 release, they return to the road in the spring. Be on the lookout for more from the band very soon as their story expands further.
