Monograms is the alias of front-man & multi-instrumentalist Ian Jacobs. Over the past few years the project quickly expanded from a bedroom recording experiment to a full band endeavor. Since then, Monograms has been performing everywhere they can get feet and sound to stage, supporting international indie regulars Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Goggs (Ty Segall/Ex Cult), Sunflower Bean, Ezra Furman, Caveman, APTBS, Girl Band, DMA’s, Dreamers, Gang of Youths, Quilt and others as well as getting notable press from all over the U.S. and Europe.
Melodic threads and lucid rhythms, sewed through new-wave tones and angular riffs point the band’s approach at previous decades in college radio and contemporary DIY vibes that pull from similar genres.
–Monograms is Brooklyn Nuke-Wave. A Digital Rock. A Vintage Future.
