Today’s song is “Ghost Stories” by Monks of Mellonwah (MOM). Comprised of John de la Hoyde (bass guitars), Josh Baissari (drums), Joe de la Hoyde (guitars), and Vikram Kaushik (vocals/guitars) this Aussie foursome is taking the US by storm with their award-winning musical appeal.
This song is off the band’s 2014 full-length release, Turn The People. MOH delivers instant appeal that will charm your ears upon first listen. This Syndey based four-piece combines vibalicious 70’s psychedelics with an awesome alternative rocking goodness. Their music is The Eagles meets Incubus paired with a little Red Hot Chili Peppers that are amplified by the smooth and soothing vocals of Kaushik. The combination makes for an original and alluring track.
The band will be hitting the US this summer in support of Turn The People this summer for a headlining tour with support from Lime Cordiale, Hamish Anderson, and Giorgi + Leo (see dates below).
