Biography

If you hadn’t noticed, the volume and intensity of music in the Northwest is getting louder and louder. Metal, punk and hard rock are starting to take over the clubs of Washington and Oregon, and the tastemakers of the world are starting to take notice.

As the dust settles on the first explosion of talent that has captured national attention, there’s another wave of young bands ready to follow in its wake. And one band that is going to be leading the charge is the young trio from Seattle known as Monogamy Party.

Taking inspiration from fellow raging NW bass-and-drums acts like Big Business and godheadSilo, vocalist Kennedy, bassist/vocalist Yos-wa, and drummer Keith (no last names, please) have been playing together for only two years. But in that time, Monogamy Party has managed to cause all manner of commotions in venues up and down the West Coast. They’ve been hailed for their “reckless abandon” on Seattle music blog Sound On The Sound, and The Stranger recently said: “They’re like These Arms Are Snakes meets Karp meets Black Eyes. They’re great.”

The three young men came together with one simple goal in mind. Says Kennedy: “We just wanted to do some touring.” The other musical projects that Kennedy and Yos-wa were involved in were both content to record and play local shows. The itch of wanderlust in their guts, the two starting pounding out ideas for a sludgier, slower band before pulling Keith into the fold. The young sticksman was able to inject some much-needed speed and fury into Monogamy Party’s sound.
