SPB premiere: Monsterwatch - Noise You Will Never Care About EP

SPB premiere: Monsterwatch - Noise You Will Never Care About EP

Monsterwatch - Noise You Will Never Care About EP

We’re excited to give the first full listen of Monsterwatch’s brand new EP, Noise You Will Never Care About.

In addition to coming up with an EP title that totally fits our MO, the new EP brings some energetic noise rock straight out of Seattle, which is quite fitting given it’s similarities to the early grunge movement, perhaps with a little more octane and shorter attention spans.

Vocalist John Spinney shares their goals with the EP:

We recorded the EP back in September 2020 at Mothership Studios at Alma Mater in Tacoma, WA. The idea was to make the three songs one continuous track and experimenting with guitar feedback and certain pedals to create some chaotic sounds as the lead in between each song. 

The band opted to stick with the first take from the recording session, preferring its raw sound.

Check it out for yourself:

Spinney adds:

The EP title I came up with right towards the end of the night when we were finishing up the vocals. On “Somewhere” (the last track on the EP ) I wanted to have a kind of like a sendoff lyric. At the time we were doing this everything felt rather scattered and rushed just because we were doing the entire EP in one day. I couldn’t think of what to say and “noise you will never care about” just came out on a take and I was like, “Yeah, this is the name for this EP”. Once that happened my whole mindset switched and I was instantly excited for all we did that day.

Monsterwatch is scheduled to play at Treefort Music Festival and Freakout Festival later this fall.
