Monarch, comprised of guitarist Ryan Farley (Oscar Tango), drummer Greg Harrison (Taktus) & singer Maya Killtron came together in 2015 and started writing & jamming. Although they come from three distinctly different musical backgrounds, (Indie Rock, Classical/Experimental, and Hip-Hop/R&B), the trio share a common love of synth driven 80’s pop-rock. Their resulting sound is a mixture of the lush pop harmony and hooks of that era along with experimental modern sounds, creating a unique brand of shimmering synth-pop.

The band’s creative songwriting burst led to a sold-out debut show and an explosive single ‘In My Blood’, featured on CBC music in June, 2016. The subsequent radio interviews and critical acclaim from key music blogs are testament to the groups potential.

In follow up to their second single ‘Remember Me’, the band is currently working on full length album coming out in summer 2017. A tour of major Canadian cities is also being planned in support of the highly anticipated album.





Super excited to have Exclaim! premiere the new Monarch single today!
