Monarch

Performing: 1/17 4:40pm

The inception of Monarch began out of a love of vast soundscapes and soundtracks from movies of the 80s and 90s. Monarch was formed in Seattle by friends Brennan Strawn and Brent Kutzle who have, as of late, added new members and put out a first ep. "The way we write" says Brennan, "is unlike anything I've ever heard of and a little strange. We usually start with a key line, mumble in a few melodies and let our imaginations get the best of us. We love subversively singing about the things or movies we loved as kids. There's a song about 'the temple of doom' no one would ever realize simply listening once or twice through. Or probably ever, for that matter." "We're still in development of our sound, but I like pushing my voice to go to the places I feel most nostalgic about and the goal is for that to resonate a bit with others in the same way. We love half time, heavy synth bass and big melodies. Those things will never change."
