Monarch (US)

Monarch represents the free-spirited next generation of SoCal heavy psych, rooted in psychedelia and experimental prog but with a keen eye towards broader horizons. With supreme musicianship they manage to connect the dots between classic California rock, prog, pastoral pop and the vivid expansiveness of early 1990s British shoegaze. Constantly shifting moods, they conjure up images of the dazzling pacific coastlines, mountains and desert highways they have roamed.
