FoundTrack's Fall '08 Collection (Track 15/20) Monsters Are Waiting - Don't Lie
Monsters Are Waiting - Don't Lie (Track 15/20)
Album - Ones and Zeros EP (Sample/Purchase)
Label - Kanine
Monsters are Waiting are an indie rock duo from Echo Park consisting of Annalee Fery (vocals, keys) and Andrew Clark (guitar, bass). They were originally a four-piece when they formed in 2005, but have since downsized to dos...Damn you economy. The band's change coupled with Annalee's pregnancy has kept Monster fans waiting as well, but this past Fall saw the release of a new 6-track EP on Kanine Records, including our featured "Don't Lie" in addition to a Monster rendition of the Stone Roses' classic "I Wanna Be Adored". V and I got a chance to check out the band's infectious haunt-rock this past summer at the final installment of Fridays off the 405 at the Getty Center in a highly anticipated return to stage before a local-crowd. Annalee's breathy, dreamy vocals, similar in style to Blonde Redhead's Kazu Makino, served as a suitable companion to Andrew Clark's shoe-gaze drift-riffs on guitar while enchanting visuals were projected behind the full band. Check out the video below for the title track from the Ones and Zeros EP.
To get to know Annalee's green thumb and the Geico gigs she lands when she's not rocking it out on stage in this interview with PLAYBOY for their Woman on the Verge series.
