California’s Monster Treasure will be in the UK for the first time ever next month, around the release of their self-titled debut album. To amp us all up for their impending trip to these shores, the trio have released a new single and video clip ‘Wake Up’. The track is now available for instant download when you pre-order the album
Having met in High School in central California earlier this millennium, the three who make up Monster Treasure formed a few years back with the common goal to craft songs inspired by heartbreak, mortality, and financial struggle. The resulting record is mostly about being in love, frustrated, bored and angry in life. Bittersweet melodies and unhinged guitars are the order of the day.
Fully immersed in their local scene, Briana, Rachel, and RJ forge visceral, melody-fuelled punk nuggets using plenty of distortion and layering the instruments at their disposal to devastating effect. Equal parts scuzzy and sweet, menacing and full of sunshine, ‘Monster Treasure’ is a record that will both unsettle and delight.
