Monsterboy found success before finding a name. Chris Long played acoustic versions of the songs at some unofficial spots at Bonnaroo in 2017.
At this festival, MTV.com discovered the husband and wife team and interviewed them about their journey vying for a spot in the pop market. From there the husband and wife created a sound that blended instrumentation with programming. Playing baritone saxophone, keys, guitar, and singing with crafted electronic elements. The Monsterboy sound is hybrid of indie pop blended with elements of alternative, country, and EDM.
