They like what they see
Its edges are a bit jagged, even a little toxic
Like a bouncer in an evening gown"
MONOPHONIST is what their new album’s title song, "Hauptstrom" depicts: A hybrid, a bastard who’s spent his whole life chewing hardcore, punk and rock n roll and now finds himself choking on jazz, surf and country. MONOPHONIST writes lyrics that sweet-talk and caress the ear but burn in your stomach, when you begin to digest their meanings.
MONOPHONIST wants the wave-particle duality for music: Music should stimulate the brain and accelerate the body at the same time. It should make our hearts laugh while detonating something explosive inside of us.
