Mòn / 1.07.2018
Mòn is a band born in an underground box in Rome in March 2014. Conceived initially as an indie-folk project, the band begins to look for new sounds. Through the different musical worlds they come from, the five band members find their own balance by giving free rein to valves, synths, analogical and rhythmic effects, which are in contrast with melancholic and intimist lines of folk, creating a colorful patchwork of suggestions and harmonies. Theirs is a typically international sound, the result of a kaleidoscopic research that, despite the very young age, allows us to glimpse the echoes of their valuable plays.
On February 3, 2017 their first single, “Lungs”, was released.
The videoclip, entirely made with the evocative illustrations animated by Marco Brancato, has aroused considerable interest among the public and professionals, immediately obtaining thousands of views, winning the prize of the tenth edition of the Gargano Film Festival as best music video and ranking fifth in the PIVI, the Award for Best Independent Videoclips of MEI. The single has anticipated the album “Zama”, released on May 12 on Urtovox Records label. On May 29, the videoclip of “Fluorescence” was released, directed by Giacomo Favilla. “Fluorescence” has been included in some Spotify playlists, such as “Italians Do It Better”, “Top 50 Viral Italy” and “New Music Friday”. After the live preview of the album at the Monk Club in Rome, a long summer tour was inaugurated on June 24, which saw them as protagonists of many festivals. On December 27th a new video, “Fragments”, directed by Marco Brancato and Michele Manca, was premiered on Rockit: the song immediately hit the cover for the Spotify ITALIANS DO IT BETTER playlist.
