Name: The Mon
Genre: A post-everything soundtrack to your darkest nightmares
What they say: “layers of brooding sounds which sometimes unfurl at a glacial pace and other times lurch with rhythmic propulsion, each piece distinct, densley packed, and all-consuming in their evocative atmospheres
What we say: Brooding, cinematic, psychedelic torment that bubbles up and taps at the mind’s eye like the fingers of the dead in the darkest of night, Ufomammut frontman Urlo’s new solo project is at times terrifying and at times an all-enveloping comfort blanket of sound. Debut album Doppelleben is a work of understated beauty that leans heavy on the synths yet manages to deftly side-step the John Carpenter circle-jerk the music industry is currently caught in.
What’s next? Debut album Doppelleben is released 8 November through Supernatural Cat
