LIQUID MONK TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM SEPTEMBER 22

SINGLE “ON THE ROCKS” FEATURING JAYE PRIME AND HUGO BIGGS PREMIERES

The self-titled debut full-length from emerging Detroit band Liquid Monk will be released September 22 via Beverly Martel. Their lead single “On the Rocks” featuring Jaye Prime and Hugo Biggs recently premiered, with Earmilk hailing, “Liquid Monk has become notorious in Detroit for blending the raw, organic components of jazz instrumentals with elements of an electronic edge…For this particular collaboration, they produced a silky jazz backdrop layered with R&B vocals and a dose of a hip-hop rhyme. The intimacy felt in the track reminds me of the vulnerability in Syd’s voice from The Internet. While the full-bodied production reminds me of the seven-piece New Zealand band, Fat Freddy’s Drop.” Indie Shuffle furthers “it’s an absolute belter. A super chilled slow jam with effortless groove.” Listen/share here.

The new music follows their 2015 debut EP, Yaga, which served as the group’s introduction to Michigan’s jam and live electronic scene. The EP was a mix of jazz fusion, lush synthesizers and pounding live electronica, leading to performances alongside acts like Quantic, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, GOSH PITH and Aqueous at well known clubs and festivals in Michigan including Ann Arbor Summer Festival Top Of The Park, Dally In The Alley, Metro Times Blowout, The Loving Touch, Cliff Bell’s, The Loft and many more.

In 2016, Liquid Monk connected with talented vocalists and rappers in the Detroit music scene. With a diverse pool of lyricists, they realized a vision of merging their jazz and fusion roots with electronic music and the vocal power of pop, hip hop and R&B. The band acts as their own producer, showcasing the unique talents of each collaborator while also creating their own sonic landscape.

Liquid Monk is multi-instrumentalists Eric “Fil” Fillip (Drums, Percussion), Dan Gruszka (Guitar, Synth, Electronics), Michael Leonard (Guitar, Synth) and Omar Taji (Keyboards, Synth Bass).
