Dreamy, euphoric indie songcraft...
Rare Monk

Portland, Oregon is one of America's true centres of creativity.

Sure, the city might have lost part of its appeal to some due to near saturation-point media coverage (sorry guys!) but its music scene remains buoyant.

Rare Monk formed in Portland, taking advantage of its liberal climes to attempt something different. Beginning to get a lot of buzz Stateside, the band have kicked off a partnership with B3SCI Records.

New double A-side single 'Splice' b/w 'Sleep Attack' is out now, a potent indication of where Rare Monk could go next.

'Splice' has been given the video treatment, with Mike Clemenza and Kat Baumann concocting a hugely imaginative story.

Kat Baumann then took charge of animation, which delves into the deepest depths of the dark blue sea.

Watch it now.
