The Monicans, the band who flew from afar to take the city by storm (although sneakily). After travelling from the dark territories (no, not Mexico City) and living in a van while touring England, the band settled down in Sheffield (a city they have mentioned they like a lot) and decided to go for a grungy output filled with haunting sounds, a grungy vocal delivery, healthy use of eBow, a driven bass and a very solid drumming.
They have been playing in several Sheffield haunts too, like The Grapes and The Harley and they even headlined at The Leadmill (big stage to boot). They will be playing during Tramlines too.
Here’s ‘Angeline’, straight from The Monicans’ cauldron of grunge and rock. Check their Soundcloud for more tracks and stay tuned for our review of their Epic Entrée EP.
