MONSTERHOUSE quickly earns its name, building up a monstrous storm of influences, both classic and contemporary. The band lists Beck and Beastie Boys as influences, ones that certainly shine through on the sample-heavy instrumentals and towering hooks of tracks like “NASA” or “I WANT IT ALL.” Yet, they marry the layers of muscular guitars, propulsive bass riffs, and stomping percussion with inspiration from alt pop contemporaries like Billie Eilish and famed producers like Rick Rubin and Dangermouse. Within their marriage of rock and alt pop they explore synth-laden soundscapes like on the title track, danceable funk rhythms like on LOW RESOLUTION, and boisterous freewheeling highlights like NO BRAINER. It’s a slick work of forward-thinking alt pop with just enough chaos to capture the band’s DIY approach.
“Everything changed between album one and two. Our lineup, style, appearances. Shedding our skin felt like an important growth spurt waiting to happen within the last two or three years and musically we wanted to make something totally unique in our minds. We were able to approach this album with a very free, open canvas.”
