Monsters Are Waiting
Ones And Zeroes
Kanine Records
www.monstersarewaiting.com


Monsters Are Waiting have released a 6-track epilogue to their debut record, Fascination, entitled Ones And Zeroes. Like most epilogues, the EP tells audiences where Monsters Are Waiting have gone after their debut record, and as for MAW, they are two members shorter, but their ambient synth-pop content is very much still intact. Ones And Zeroes officiates the band's continuation with lead singer/keyboardist Annalee Fery and bassist/guitarist Andrew Clark steering the vessel towards an electro/ambient-pop version of The Cardigans.

Monsters Are Waiting's music is ethereal sounding but moves to the rhythmic movements of mortals. Fery and Clark create liquid filled channels with a simple tranquility relatable to Hem coated in electro-pop shields that tickle the senses and stimulates feelings of Utopian bliss. The band's laser-like rays have a sunlight hue and spray like stardust falling from a speeding comet. Some tracks have an upbeat pulse like the title track, "Crazy Love," and the band's cover of The Stone Roses' "I Wanna Be Adored," which generate frolicking chord series and puffy intervals like Lost Ocean. The more dainty soundscapes of "Don't Lie" and "It's Endless" have a sheer gloss that resembles Great Northern, almost making it possible for you to stick your finger right through the melody and feeling what it is like to touch air. The synth wrapped ballad "Steal The Sun" has an enchanting flow that takes the listener to a wondrous world which cleanses the mind and rids the body of toxins and grief.

Monsters Are Waiting's EP Ones And Zeroes has melodic masses that sonically share properties with New Age therapy. The band's music is aurally serene and emotionally tickling. The band's new EP is consistent with their debut album and keeps MAW's focus on their mission.
