Holy Monitor is a psychedelic rock quintet whose sound incorporates elements of krautrock, space rock and ambient music. The band's reverb soaked vocals crawl beneath waves of pulsating minimal rhythms, while fuzz driven guitars and proggy keys create a hypnotic sonic ambience. Holy Monitor were founded in Athens, Greece during the summer of 2015 by guitarist Stefanos Mitsis, singer/guitarist George Nikas, keyboardist Vangelis Mitsis, bassist Alex Bolpasis and drummer Dimitris Doumouliakas. Over the course of a short period of time, they release the EP’s “Golden Light” and “Aeolus” by Ongakubaka Records. In 2016 they start recording their first full length self-titled album which is released in February 2017 by the Greek independent label Blackspin/Primitive Music. Their critically acclaimed debut is followed by intense live performing, sharing the stage with established psych-rock bands like The Black Angels, Wooden Shjips and Kikagaku Moyo. Their sophomore album “II” comes next year introducing a heavier, droning spaced out sound from rhythmic krautrock to blissed out space rock and on into modern day psych permutations. Self-released EP’s “Ghost” and “This Desert Land” follow, signifying a new era for the band with a focus on jamming and experimenting, contributing a slight shift in their sound and leading to the band's most focused record yet, 2021's live recorded “Southern Lights”.
