The new song ‘Never Been Good’ is a delicate fusion of classic rock, 80’s indie pop with elements of electronica in the mix. It’s no accident that they have been mentioned in articles and reviews in The Huffington Post, Guitar World, Music Connection Magazine, Pop Matters, Absolute Punk Technorati among others. They have been singled out in one report as being “…one of the most impressive rock groups emerging from the world of alternative music.” The band is taking no chances with this their second full length album. They have enlisted the services of producer Keith Olson (Fleetwood Mac, Ozzy Osbourne) and acclaimed engineer Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons) to craft a record that builds on their impressive resume to date and should catapult them to the next rung up the ladder.
The band is currently in the studio putting the finishing touched on the record which should be released later this year and I would expect them to be touring the US again soon to support the release. I have heard a number of the newer bands coming out of Australia and dare I say that Sydney is fast becoming “the” new spot for emerging bands and The Monks of Mellonwah are certainly helping to bolster the claim.
