New Addiction: Monahan

Sometimes you want to bypass all the experimental rock bands in Athens and get something that hits a lot closer to home. Enter Monahan. If you’re looking to fill the heartfelt pop-rock void the Modern Skirts just left, Monahan can do you one better: he actually means it.

Ryan Monahan has a strong group of contributors backing him, often joining him in other escapades like Beatles for Sale and Ola Moon. Monahan’s musical leanings resemble everyone from Maroon 5 to Elvis Costello. But Monahan is pure indie crooning, balanced by clever melodies and developed instrumentation. We’re still amazed he hasn’t landed on a film soundtrack yet. All in due time. Make sure to check out Monahan for yourself this Saturday at Little Kings.
