The Monks of Mellonwah- Neurogenesis
Bringing together musical precision and an inescapable energy, Australian rock quartet The Monks of Mellonwah craft music that stands apart from the typical indie-rock trend chasers. Their 2012 EP Neurogenesis shows the dynamic range of the band perfectly. Each member brings impressive technical ability to the table, while never letting anything sound show-offy or unnecessary. In fact, their brand of rock music should be noted for its subtlety, choosing to express itself through its expert songwriting rather than instrumental pyrotechnics.
Opening title track and single Neurogensis shows hints of dredg, Pink Floyd, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers in its atmospheric space, driving riffs and sharp metaphors. The rest of the tracks are a bit more down tempo, letting vocalist Will Maher shine over the bands excellent playing.
The Monks are currently working on their debut full length album, while touring extensively in Australia and the USA to build up their fanbase.
