Moneen - The Red Tree
I first confused Moneen with Maroon which is quite something different. And I think that I prefer Moneen instead. Well, I know I prefer Moneen instead. Nothing against Maroon when they rock pretty damn hard!
 
After three years of almost constantly touring, Moneen stayed at home for about half a year. They started writing new material which ended up in their latest album The Red Tree. With Brian McTernan (Snapcase, Thrice, Hot Water Music) as producer, the sound is just great. Their music reminds me a bit of Adair. I also reviewed this band some time ago. Both bands play some combination of alternative indie-rock. Moneen is way more melodic though. Their music is driven by a very powerful yet subtle energetic force. It’s pretty diverse and doesn’t seem to bore.
 
The Red Tree contains 11 songs which cover up only a short 45 minutes, which is not that much if you’d ask me. The titles of those songs are just the opposite of that. To give an example of the length of the titles, here is one: “The Frightening Reality Of The Fact That We Will All Have To Grown Up And Settle Down One Day” Another one is; “There Are A Million Reasons For Why This May Not Work…And Just One Good One For Why It Will”. With those kind of titles you’d expect something from the lyrics. As I got a promotional copy without a booklet I cannot tell. But keep an eye on the interview section on metalrage.com. There is an interview coming up with Moneen including that question.
 
There’s not much more that I’d like to say about Moneen at the moment. One thing that I do want to say, if you’re into melodic-indie-emo and stuff like that, you should definitely check them out!
