A year and a half after their successful debut EP, Funeral, Montreal-based We Are Monroe are releasing Midnight Cruiser, the first single off of the upcoming album set to drop at the end of April. The official video will be launched at the Single Release event held at The Belmont in Montreal on January 28th.
The band collaborated with Patrick Krief (Krief, The Dears) and Dave Traina (The Damn Truth) during the recording and mixing process of Midnight Cruiser. The input and influence of both these talented musicians can be heard on the track and has helped the band accentuate and deepen their identifiable sound, bringing it to a whole other level.
London-based John Davis, who has worked with so many of the music’s great over the years (including Jimmy Page, U2, Foals, FKA Twigs, White Lies, Haim, Led Zeppelin, New Order and Florence & The Machines to only name a few) mastered the track.
The video, produced by Frédérique Gaudet and directed by Sacha Aubé and Thomas Leblanc Murray, will premiere at the Single Release Show happening on January 28th at The Belmont, in Montreal, along with Po Lazarus and Mike McKenna Jr who will warm up the room. Get tickets HERE
Often categorized as a post-punk revival band, We Are Monroe’s sound has been described as dancy indie-rock with an edge, based on a drum/bass rhythm core, and they’ve built a reputation for the raw, hard-hitting, high-energy dynamic of its live shows.Share this :
