Add Information:

A New Breed Of Monkey are a cool, dirty indie band from Burnley. Their songs are sometimes melodic, sometimes fast and grimy, but never miss-fitting. The band play an upbeat, sweaty set, taking you back to the nice, simple, black and white indie genre as they play a mixture of progressive, broodingly atmospheric indie and energetic Indie-Rock distinguished by some intelligent lyrics, haunting melodies and sharp guitar-work. A truly inspiring band, they have managed to inject a spark of unique talent to an older genre as they set the stage alight with their exceptional performance, from the way they compose themselves on stage, to the way they belt out works of art such as "Mannequin". Vocally front-man "The Bung" is similar to that of Maximo Park's Paul Smith and in the quieter moments there is even a little Guy Garvey (Elbow), and like their northern counterparts there is a great deal of emotional intensity in the music ANBOM make. Very tight and well arranged it's a compelling direction which sits nicely alongside the current crop of indie hopefuls yet as the same time is nicely removed ensuring the band standout as something original and genuinely exciting
