Monks In The Wood Unveil New Single No Love
“…a delirious, rompin’ stompin’ garage melter that refuses to be bracketed.” – Clash
For Fans of… The Shins, Local Natives, Broken Bells
Following on from their last single Evidence, Peckham-based band Monks In The Wood are back with an exquisite new single. No Love out 2nd March 2018 via Spinnup.
Flowing with twinkling hooks and sweeping, impassioned harmonies, No Love oozes a delicate beauty and rich, anthemic splendour. Inspired by the contrasting feelings found within relationships and everyday life, it’s a stirring, emotion-strewn slice of indie-pop with a sound akin to the likes of Broken Bells or The Shins.
Monks In The Wood formed back in 2015 when Matt Power (vocals/guitar), Daniel Toone (vocals/guitar) and James Oliver (drums) left former band Deltar and joined forces with Laurence Brydges (bass) and Samuel Powell (keys). Since then they’ve honed their unique style, receiving acclaim from the likes of BBC Introducing London and When The Horn Blows, and charming crowds at Into The Wild and Greenstone Festival. Now, they hope to break the barriers of the generic ‘indie’ style, and allure listeners across the UK and beyond with the emotive majesty of No Love.
