Listen to Hard Syncer

MONOKINO (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) weaves ear-piercing synthesizers, angry guitar-riffs and pounding drums with a highly-exceptional voice to produce futuristic sounding, awe-inspiring wave and pop. Monokino is signed by China´s biggest independent label Modern Sky. The band has toured extensively across China (Strawberry Festival Beijing and Shanghai 2013), the Netherlands (Eurosonic 2009), Canada (NXNE 2011, Sled Island 2012) and the USA (SXSW 2009) and worked with producer Tony Visconti and singer Kristeen Young. Their sophomore album "Fake Virtue" (2013 - produced by Jacco Gardner), is more versatile and unique than ever and received great press reviews:
