Our very own StartTheMonkey come from Piraeus, Athens and introduce themselves with their very first EP, “Start of the Monkey”. Although the whole aesthetic and the title of the album might refer refer to a mainstream, heavy / stoner-rock release, their fifteen-minute EP bring out lots of elements that have been missing from the music we are usually seeing strolling through our social media pages in 2020. Their music is lost somewhere in the desert rock, original recipe of California-style and the post / sludge of  High on Fire and Neurosis. A dynamic principle for them people, with solid compositions that can stand uncluttered on a music board, always giving the corresponding feeling that it is a newly formed band. Either way, StartTheMonkey greeted the music scene in the most appropriate way possible. With a little work and focus, they can accomplish a lot!
