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.
