Bio

Mona Bay have been described as ‘culture shifting visionaries who possess the voice of the revolution’ but only once by some naked dude on the street who hadn’t listened to their music yet and appeared to be freaking out on DMT.

In reality, Mona Bay is comprised of four best friends who play garage indie rock punk music. Their songs explore themes of love, reflections of youth, and their personal experiences navigating life in the age of online dating, smartphones, and uncertain futures.

Their new EP ‘Feed the Robots’ was recorded in a suburban bedroom on a quiet street in Melbourne. ‘Fake’ is the first track on the EP and spawned from a sudden allergic reaction to social media and societies voluntary commitment to a cyber dystopia. You know how in a dream everything makes sense and is kind of fun and entertaining at the time but when you wake up you realise that it was completely obnoxious and senseless and actually really weird when you think about it? Yeah…

Mona Bay, hey? Reckon I better remember that name cos there's a whole stack promise on display here. Confident and surging indie rock sound here.

GUYS, I think this is the best you guys have sounded!! Exciting. Vocals are clear and at your best. Lyrics are quite gloomy; the kind you might have if you were having a bad trip, drank too much, having a bad day or a mind that's just not set in the best way. I love it though. It's very realised. It's REAL.
