Breaking Bands: Monogold

Breaking Bands: Monogold
By Matthew Arevalo
  • Breaking Bands is featuring a band this week that you might remember as a winner of INDMUSIC’s CMJ Music Video Contest with The Deli Magazine. This Brooklyn three-piece band played a great set at CMJ and we are happy we had the chance to be there.

    Since Monogold formed the line up has undergone many transformations going from five members to three members, but listening to the band perform you’d never think that a three piece could create such a textured sound. The band’s single, “Wind or Hymn” from their album The Softest Glow starts with waving synths and a bouncing beat that gives way to ethereal vocals and powerful guitar.

  • The future is bright for Monogold: they were featured in Google Music’s announcement last week and receiving accolades from countless music blogs and magazines. We are looking forward to more videos and shows. When Monogold comes to your town, be sure to check out their amazing live show. You can check out the band’s electric performance “Wind or Hymn” here.

  • You can buy The Softest Glow on iTunes, Google Music, and stream it on Spotify.
