A year and a half after their successful debut EP, Funeral, Montreal-based We Are Monroe release “Midnight Cruiser”, the first single off of the upcoming album set to drop at the end of April.
The band was lucky enough to collaborate with Patrick Krief (Krief, The Dears) and Dave Traina (The Damn Truth) during the recording and mixing process of “Midnight Cruiser”. The input and influence of both these talented musicians can be heard on the track and has helped the band accentuate and deepen their identifiable sound, bringing it to a whole other level.
London-based John Davis, who has worked with so many of the music’s great over the years (including Jimmy Page, U2, Foals, FKA Twigs, White Lies, Haim, Led Zeppelin, New Order and Florence & The Machines to only name a few) mastered the track.
The video, produced by Frédérique Gaudet and directed by Sacha Aubé and Thomas Leblanc Murray, premiered at the Single Release Show on January 28th at The Belmont, in Montreal, along with Po Lazarus and Mike McKenna Jr who warmed up the room.
About We Are Monroe:
Often categorized as a post-punk revival band, We Are Monroe creates an unpretentious form of dancy indie-rock with an edge, based on a drum/bass rhythm core, and has grown famous for the raw, hard-hitting, high-energy dynamic of its live shows, while steadily selling out venues and playing renowned festivals.
