MONKS

 

With their roots deeply entrenched in Liverpool’s bustling music scene, MONKS emerges as a dynamic force blending alternative guitar-based influences with ethereal electronic vibes. Their forthcoming EP, “Worldview,” is a testament to their genre-bending prowess, drawing inspiration from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Mount Kimbie, and Tame Impala.

Fronted by the enigmatic George Pomford, Monks is a collective, including guitarist Nathan Johnson, drummer Kali Diston-Jones, and synthesist Liam Daly. Formed within Liverpool’s iconic LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) Monks bonded over their mutual love for music and their desire to carve out a space for themselves within the industry. From late-night writing sessions in remote spaces to impromptu performances at local venues, their bond quickly solidified as they discovered a shared vision for their sound.

As the debut alternative signing to ‘Not That Records’ and Virgin Music, Monks has garnered significant attention, amassing over 2.5 million combined catalogue streams and selling out venues across the UK. From their electrifying performances at Liverpool’s iconic Arts Club Theatre to their sold-out residency nights and supporting slots for acclaimed acts like The Night Café and Inhaler, Monks has solidified their reputation as a must-see live act.

With “Worldview” on the horizon, Monks invites listeners on a journey of sonic exploration, where lush melodies, pulsating rhythms, and introspective lyrics converge to create an immersive musical experience. It’s a testament to their boundless creativity and unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of what alternative and electronic music can be.
