Looking for some new music to add to your playlist? We recently came across the music of indie rock band, Rare Monk, which sounds like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard before. Hailing out of Portland, Oregon, Rare Monk combine their love of both 90s and contemporary Indie Rock with an electro-pop sound. Speaking on their music, the bands front-man Dorian Aites says, ‘Although we draw upon many genres for inspiration, we’ve been creating our own thing based on nothing other than the idea that these are the songs we wrote cause they sound cool.’ Rare Monk kicked off 2014 with a limited release of track ‘Splice,’ a slow melodic song lifted by dreamy vocal harmonies and subtle electronic hues. Check out the track below:

A limited edition 7” AA-side single (“Splice” and “Sleep/Attack”) is available to pre-order via B3SCI Records. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section below!
