Monks of Mellonwah – Vanity
The Monks of Mellonwah are a band from Sydney, Australia whose music displays a masterful and unique blend of intense space, driving riffs and sharp metaphors.
The Monks of Mellonwah consist of; lead vocalist Vikram Kaushik, guitarist Joseph de la Hoyde, as well as drummer Joshua Baissari and bassist John de la Hoyde. The creative collision of these four musical personalities yields a timeless, yet inimitable array of alternative rock, progressive rock and cinematic-themed scores.
Together for only a little over four years, the Monks of Mellonwah have catapulted quickly into success on a global scale. In addition to worldwide airplay, the band has gleaned over four-hundred press reviews – as well as syncs and licensing – from the likes of Bunim/Murray Productions, MTV Networks, Discovery Channel, and FOX Sports. In addition, the band has already toured the U.S.A, Singapore and Australia. “M.O.M” were voted “Best Indie Rock Band” in the 2012 Artists in Music Awards and placed as the “International Rock Artist of the Year” at the 22nd Annual LA Music Awards in 2012.
The Monks of Mellonwah set out musically not to repeat past styles, yet rather to pave the future for alternative rock. In doing so, they take the preeminent sounds of 70s psychedelic rock and 90s alternative – and blend it into something fresh and new.
