Toronto band MONOWHALES make music that feels like a sonic gut punch. Propelled by an insatiable desperation for honesty, the group — vocalist Sally Shaar, guitarist Zach Zanardo and drummer Jordan Circosta — bring a warrior’s mentality to the rock and roll dream. Self-made and tour-hardened, MONOWHALES are a vision of rock’s future untethered by its past.
Now distributed by Warner Music Canada and internationally through LAB Records, the group have unveiled a fresh, industrial-infused pop-rock sound on “CTRL^^^,” the lead single from the highly anticipated, Dave Schiffman (Adele, Pup) produced new album, Tunnel Vision (out in 2022).
A declaration of independence, “it felt very honest and liberating to finally admit ‘I like to be in control’ and not be ashamed about it at all,” Shaar exclaims. “I feel like I have arrived at a place in my life where I can see what control can look like, the good, the bad and the hideous. With that clearness I’m learning to yield that power myself.”
