Biography

Moniker is a progressive psychedelic rock band based out of Boston, MA. Their sound has been described as "ethereal sonic story-telling; with U2 textures, Radiohead rhythms, Pink Floyd psychedelia, and a necessary dose of irony." The band is distinguished by a guitar-heavy dose of psychedelia and a sound that is quite heavy, but maintains a true melody.

According to TIME OUT Magazine: “Boston’s likely got more unsigned indie bands per cubic inch than any city in America, but even still it’s hard to imagine why someone, somewhere hasn’t picked up a band like Moniker.”

The group has released four EPs: Kid Kelly (July 2009), Babel Racket (March 2011), Work in Prague (January 2012), and most recently, Ansible (November 2012).

Moniker won The Deli Magazine’s New England Artist of the Month poll for the month of August 2011, and was nominated for New England Emerging Artist of the Year in the same publication.

The band has performed at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, TX in the past, and will be launching a California/West Coast Tour in early 2013.
