STORY

Monograms from Brooklyn NYC, originally a solo venture of Ian Jacobs but currently performing as a 4 piece band, have been very active in the past few years, releasing 3 EP’s and opening for the likes of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, GøGGS (a side project of Ty Segall and members of Ex-Cult), Girl Band, Ezra Furman, Sunflower Bean, Caveman, APTBS’s Dion Lunadon, Quilt and others. Their constant work has led them to a new understanding of their individual style, a 90’s-esque post-punk-psych, which is evident in their new single ‘Sleep Cycle’.

Dark swirling and heavy tones, melodic threads, lucid rhythms and new-wave pallets point the approach at the heyday of college radio, as well as contemporary post punk from NYC, that’s born in a basement, sharpened on city streets and ends up stuck in your head. Monograms will continue to expand upon their new found Garage-Post-Wave headed into 2018, with new releases and live performances.
