Press Release: August 05, 2016
Having already racked up spins on Triple J Unearthed Radio, ‘The Mondays’ are quickly pleasing audiences across Australia with their catchy new single ‘Wasted Time’, which will be featured on Lighthouse Records' ‘Indie Legends’ album due out July 22nd.
Friday, July 1, 2016 — Whilst the Boomtown Rats were busy shooting 'Mondays' down, High school friends, Dan, Luke, Isaac and Josh decided to turn 'Mondays' around and shoot to the stars instead. Together they became creative and began writing and playing music, determined to push the boundaries of conventional indie pop to make music that is new and different from anything heard before.
With the addition of band a new band member, Anupriya, the now five-piece 'The Mondays' just-released single, 'Wasted Time', is packed full of raw talent and vigorous enthusiasm. Driven by their passion of reaching lofty potentials, Perth-based 'The Mondays' are well on their way to making hits happen.
Combining indie, funk and rock, Dan moves from guitar to keyboard to vocals in slipstream style engaging the audience with his gregarious, youthful enthusiasm. With one EP ‘Groove’ (2014) and one single out already, 'The Mondays' are quickly winning over audiences around the country, already receiving national radio play on Triple J Unearthed.
The band is often compared to ‘Ballpark Music’ with their rich harmonies and fast-paced, keyboard heavy rhythmic pieces. However, as the band evolves from their first EP ‘Groove’ (2014), ‘The Mondays’ creativity is becoming more a reflection of their influences, such as The Wombats, Matt Corby, The Roots and Justin Timberlake.
The Mondays will join a handpicked selection of unsigned Australian artists when their latest single, ‘Wasted Time’, is featured on Lighthouse Records’ compilation album, ‘Indie Legends’. Digital copies are available for free pre-order from the website
