The album will be available physically on smoke marbled colored vinyl. The pre-sale is already available exclusively on La Casa del Disco and you can get your copy now by clicking HERE.

„Staying In The Sun“ is probably the song with the most instrumental power and aggressiveness on the album, it uses noise as a core tool. This opposes the pop character that the song suggests at first and moves it to a new ground. The song deals with the escape from reality, using the sun as a hiding place, as a new home.

In the words of the band’s lead singer and guitarist Mariña Paz: “It’s the furthest place from earth that we could think of, as well as being a very powerful and fun image. There is something innocent about the thought of running away to a place where it would be impossible to live. It has a lot to do with the rest of the songs on the album, which also deal with this topic. These are feelings that we have all experienced at some point, the fear of confrontation and solving problems or complicated situations in life. It can be paralyzing, but you learn a lot from it.”

„Staying In The Sun“ was one of the first songs the band composed for the album in the middle of the quarantine. A song created and produced through a video call together with Iago Lorenzo (producer). The song was born with a percussion loop, then baritone guitars with distortion were added, which marked the identity of the rest of the album. Later, Mariña arrived to add the corresponding melody and lyrics along with Gonzalo.

The song is once again accompanied by an official video directed by Alberto Castaño that well demonstrates the power and aggressiveness of the guitars on this single – watch it HERE.

The band’s lead singer also had a few words about the official video: “In the video clip we are seen on a set playing, initially in black and white. As the song progresses, the colors appear, the imagination. The finale is a climax of distortion and noise, strobes, and a stronger attitude. It is a metaphor for the message of the song. Color and imagination give us hope and determination to face things.”

The band previously released two singles. You can watch the official videos here:

About Furious Monkey House:
It seems that the new generations can no longer wait. They need to express misunderstanding, tiredness, fear, and above all, the desire for change. Furious Monkey House contributes to the current musical renewal, with an eclectic style and a desire for a sound expansion.

In the eight years of the project’s life, the band has forged its stylistic identity on fire: the one that manages to go beyond trends and pay homage to a guitar rock that goes from grunge to alternative pop, with nods reminiscent of Pixies, Radiohead, Tame Impala, Deftones, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Portishead and PJ Harvey, among others, but who also manages to project their own watermarks.

After the success achieved with their debut album “RUN” (2015) and their follow up “Love, Scum & Dust” (2019/ Universal Music Spain), this sextet from Pontevedra led by five musicians and their music teacher, returns in 2023 with what will be his third long duration “Oneiric”.

Their new work represents a great leap in all aspects: the band takes denser and darker textures, loaded with samples, synthesizers and reverb complemented by catchy melodies, sometimes energetic and other desperate.

It is a high-quality indie rock that will not go unnoticed in 2023. A soundtrack proposal to accompany feelings such as emptiness or dissatisfaction of the new generations. Furious Monkey are no longer children and they more than show it to us with this new “Oneiric”.
