Tell us a little bit about yourselves.
I’m Sally Shaar and in the band MONOWHALES. We are a trio that plays fun music we like to rock out to.
How did you come together to form MONOWHALES?
I met Jordan Circosta when I was in high school and we hit it off right away but didn’t start playing together until we got into college. That’s where we both met Zach and the rest is history.
How would you describe your musical style?
Indie, Alt, Rock, Pop is what we’re told by people around us. It’s hard to put your own music in a genre category sometimes. Feels like it’s boxing you in. I try to forget about it.
What can you tell us about your latest single, “He Said/She Said (I Wait)” and the video behind it?
This song is our interpretation of what perpetual anxiety in the current climate feels like. The video was a digitally rendered world that we are glitching out in that we are psychedelically stuck in.
What can audiences expect from your latest album, “Daytona Bleach”?
It’s non-stop. No slow songs, we just keep on keeping on. Please check it out and let us know what you think.
How has COVID-19 affected your group?
It’s been hard to lose close friends to the virus so that is the most difficult. It also has greatly impacted our mental health in interesting ways and we imagine it’s that way with a lot of people out there. Our hearts go out to those in difficult situations during this strange time. We are trying to make the most out of it and write as many songs as we can.
What’s next for MONOWHALES?
OoOoOOo newwwww things are always brewing in our cauldron. New concepts, new music, new video ideas. Have no fear, we always have something to work on for you.
What advice would you have for aspiring music artists?
Learn everything you can from the internet and people around you about songwriting as well as music marketing. The way to market your music is always changing so keep up with it and be creative! Also, there is no perfect way to do anything so try it, if it doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to, it’s cool, let it go and move on to the next thing. LAST THING, please don’t overwork yourself, take care of your mind and body first, and then everything else will be better because of it.
What are your lives like outside of music?
We do our best to try to take the time we are not together to unwind since we are together pretty much 24/7.
