Fuelled by a passionate desire to create a sound as unapologetic and powerful as the personalities within the band, pop-infused indie rock quartet MONOWHALES have taken the experiences gained fighting their way up the ranks of Toronto’s highly competitive music scene and barrelled headlong into the creation of their new EP Control Freak.

Exploding onto the scene with a DIY ethos and an unforgettable live show, MONOWHALES first made waves with their breakout single Home in August 2016. Known best for their live performances, the band has shared the stage with Dear Rouge, K.Flay, Sloan, Matt and Kim, and Coleman Hell to name a few.

The band’s new EP Control Freak was produced by AL-P (MSTRKRFT Death From Above 1979) and released in June 2018. The record spawned multiple singles that received radio play across Canada with first single “Take It Back” being described by 102.1 The Edge as “the track that put [MONOWHALES] on the indie rock-map in Canada” after it peaked at #25. The band followed this up with multiple Canadian tours and the release of subsequent singles “Real Love” and “Let It Go”, climbing the charts to #31 and #32 respectively.

MONOWHALES are currently working with producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge Brave Shores) on their upcoming release.
