- Monophon


With spherical synthie-sounds and pounding beats, MONOPHON catch the spirit of time of the urban music scene. “The dreamy Swiss answer to MGMT” is used in one breath with Duran Duran. Radio stations from Prag across to L.A. Airplay and the Californian music platform «bestnewbands.com» already featured MONOPHON’s songs «Captain Future» and «Protection». Their music clip «Secret Island» was seen by over 60’000 people around the globe. Monophon opened the Open Air St. Gallen 2011 creating a perfect prelude with their sound. Their music thrilled thousands – not even MTV could resist to blog their gig as a “sensational performance”. Since then the quartet gathered more festival experience (opener for «Mika» at «Das Festival» in Schaffhausen), played the opening act for «Friendly Fires» at one of the German part of Switzerland’s most important concert venues (Abart Zürich) and heating up the audience for «Hard-Fi» at the Bierhübeli, Bern. With their debut album «MAKEUP AND BEAUTY» MONOPHON presents their multifarious repertoire. The newcomers not only prove their reputation as being a phenomenal live-band at festivals and in concert halls, but on top of that start to conquer the club-scene in your area.
