As also seen on The Soda ShopMonobrow is the next New Band To Burn One To.
Monobrow was formed in Ottawa early 2009 when bassist Sam Beydoun and guitarist Paul Slater (formerly of Vancouver's Sir Hedgehog) first jammed with drummer Brian Ahopelto of Acres fame. Sharing a common love for adventurous, underground heavy rock in its many guises, the group quickly built up an impressive repertoire of original songs over the next few months. While not setting out to be an instrumental group, the chemistry between the trio was strong enough that no one wanted to risk messing up the vibe. More importantly, Monobrow felt that the songs that were being developed were strong enough to stand on their own as instrumentals, often with improvised segments within the compositions. In the late summer of 2009, Monobrow entered Yogi's Meatlocker Studio and emerged with a four song recording, which gained significant airplay on Carleton University's CKCU station. This positive response was soon followed by Monobrow's live debut in late 2009. Monobrow's sound can be described as riff-based hard rock, with psychedelic flourishes, and a sense of jamming contained within strong songwriting.These guys have some pretty cool tunes goin. They have a few tracks over on their Myspace page but their full length album can be streamed, and bought, over at Bandcamp.
