About Monks of Mellonwah:
A four-piece alternative rock and indie band based in Sydney, the Monks draw on the depth and variety of influences driving each member to create a fresh and unique sound, blending elements of classic blues & rock in Hendrix, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and the Chili Peppers with more recent sounds including Muse. Their first E.P., Stars Are Out, is testament to such a unique blend, and has been highly praised since its release in 2010.

Since recording, the Monks have gone from strength to strength, receiving significant radio play across Australia on community radio and more recently triplej. They have also been busy developing an electrifying and atmospheric live act through supporting bands such as Thirsty Merc and You Am I as well as headlining at a wide range of well-respected Australian music venues including The Oxford Art Factory, The Factory Theatre and The Metro Theatre.

The Monks of Mellonwah released their first music video ‘Swamp Groove in April 2011 and have since enjoyed play on ABC’s music program RAGE. Swamp Groove also claimed first prize at a music video night at ‘Harold’s Shorts’ short film festival, receiving great reviews and the award from legendary music historian and personality Glenn A Baker.
