Halifax, Nova Scotia, CAN

Monomyth is a jangly pop band from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Centred around three songwriters, three-part harmonies and three-minute songs, Monomyth play sophisticated music with primitive ideals. An intriguing mixture of chime and grime recalling 80s college rock (ie. the dBs, the Feelies, the Clean).


Monomyth played their first show in an empty lot on Gottingen St. in early August of 2011. Their first song 'Anytime', garnered attention online and was been chosen for inclusion on several curated compilations including the scene-defining Khyber Compilation Volume Two, Pigeon Row's digital sampler Your Samples Our Obsession, CKDU's Music Nova Scotia Mixtape and Bruised Tongue's Summer Sampler.

Since then, Monomyth has toured from coast to coast with Dog Day, played numerous festival dates including an opening slot for the Black Lips at the Halifax Pop Explosion and had their home-recorded debut EP named by Exclaim as the fourth best of 2012.

They are currently readying their second EP as well as a cassette in the venerable Craft Single Series. With a new tape comes a new tour so Monomyth will be hitting the road again this summer.

Monomyth have shared the stage with peers like Each Other, Feel Alright, Nu Sensae, B.A. Johnston, Slam Dunk, Cold Warps, The Pinecones, Cousins and Babysitter.
