Manila based alternative rock quartet, AlienMonk have released a hard hitting video for their single, “You might be the problem”. The band, an eclectic group consisting of guitarist and vocalist Jono Smith, an Australian, drummer Demi Borongan, a Filipino, lead guitarist Dhaval Soni, an Indian and bass guitarist, Phil Wheatley, a Brit, have been playing their brand of honest, message laden fuzz rock around Manila for the last 9 months.
“Our music is a mixture of grunge, metal and punk whilst maintaining solid melodies, we think this track captures elements of our sound pretty well” says Jono Smith, lead vocalist for the band. Regarding the video he adds “the song was, at it’s base about the evils of unfiltered news on social media, but there are a lot more implications that come along with that. We think that was captured nicely in the video.
“We really hope people both enjoy the music and pick up on the messages”
