The new remix and previous single ‘White Gold’ mark a new era for the atmospheric, raucously anarchic El Moono. Following their 2019 single ‘Thanks for Nothing’ (Small Pond Records) and heavy touring around the UK and Europe with the likes of Black PeaksPhoxjawHaggard Cat, Fangclub, and Press to MECO – El Moono are back with a vengeance. With influences of rock, hardcore, metal and grunge, the band’s off-kilter and oftentimes mind-bending riffs, emotive songs and expressive lyricism combine to create a sound that’s difficult to pigeonhole. 

‘White Gold’ and both versions of ‘Forced to Smile’ follow ‘Thanks for Nothing’, their self-released EP ‘Tides’ and standalone single ‘Aura’. El Moono‘s captivating music have seen support from Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker, who has played every single to date on his show, as well as Amazing Radio and more.

Having recently supported Haggard Cat and performing at Burn it Down and Attitude Festival, and with their first hometown show in two years lined up for 2021, there’s no stopping this promising quartet. 

Live dates:

31.10.2021 – Brighton, The Prince Albert (headline)
