"Monkey" and "Bat" are two unrelated species that would not naturally be found inhabiting the same body. In the same way, the band Monkey Bat combines acoustic and electric, intense and beautiful, complex and simple into a kind of music that is all their own. With their first album, Springtime Love, in the can and expected to be released in the spring of 2013, they're already at work on their second album.
Monkey Bat has a way of capturing the interest of the young listener (who is at the point where they are able to listen) as well as the more mature and educated listener because of its polished surface, well designed passages, non-binding melodies and precise execution. It's purpose is to be nonrestrictive music that petitions ones intellect while appealing to your sense of adventure and freedom. It's like Rock & Roll for grownups.
