The Mono Jacks is a four-piece hailing from Bucharest, Romania, whose visceral, indie-inflected wall of sound immediately brings to mind Interpol, Editors and White Lies.
From the very first show, in late 2008, the band decimated expectations and became immediately one of the most acclaimed new Romanian acts.
Started by Doru Trascau (guitar/vox), the band is made up of Dorian Cazacu (drums), Florin Vasile (guitar/back-vox) and Alex Voicu (bass).
Their seductive, incendiary post-rock rhythms with visible traces of '90s alternative and the band's contagious live chemistry are responsible for some of the best concerts on the local music scene and for topping the alternative charts with their singles - ‘Maria’, 'Come Back Girl', 'Push the Pedal' or 'Gandurile'.
Up to date, the rock quartet has released one full-length album - 'Now in Stereo' and two EPs - 'Fortunes' and 'Gandurile Remixed'. All Mono Jacks records are available for download at themonojacks.bandcamp.com
Don't worry if you missed the band taking on the stages at EXIT (RS), Sziget (HU), Eurosonic Noorderslag (NL) or the likes of local festivals Ursus Evolution, B'estfest or Ciuc Summer Fest - you can catch The Mono Jacks at an event near you.
