“New American Housewife”, the lead single from Monroe Moon’s upcoming EP, JOY, is the perfect introduction to the band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Playing an eclectic style informed by triphop, shoegaze, and modern rock, the four-piece are releasing their EP through NYC’s Green Witch Recordings. “New American Housewife” touches on influences ranging from Portishead and Mazzy Star, to more contemporary acts such as Zero 7.
Heather Monroe of Monroe Moon, on “New American Housewife”:
“In the end, this is just an expression of the freedom I have as a woman and artist to be, explore, and create because I’m supported in love and do not fear.”
“Monroe Moon are led by the big, yearning voice of Heather Monroe, and the educated indie rock stylings of guitarist, her partner, Theo Malkin. Imagine, say, if Fiona Apple had sang better and made better decisions, if she worked with the Jesus and Mary Chain…” Outsideleft
