Monomyth is a psych-pop foursome from Halifax, Nova Scotia. To borrow from their official bio, since they put it so perfectly, they play “janglophile pop with a smirking sense of humour, stadium-sized hooks, and starry-eyed harmonies from the barbershop of broken dreams,” with inspiration from the likes of Sloan, Big Star, Television, and My Bloody Valentine peppered amongst their three lead singers. During CMJ 2014, they stopped by Saltlands Studio in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to play some songs and share tales of their highly inspired creative process and the challenges of a rivalry with a similarly-named band.
Featured song: “Fallin’ In Love”
