Seoul indie trio Monoban formed in late 2012 when singer songwriter Dayone Jang teamed with metal drummer Jifan Ly and classical cellist George Durham. Despite disparate musical backgrounds, through street busking and club performances, Monoban developed their own unique high energy folk sound, featuring layers of cello and vocals, finger picked guitar and thumping percussion.
2014 marked the release of Monoban's first EP, "Ghostship." They subsequently performed on Korean national television and national radio, at the Jarasum and Paju folk festivals, and frequent shows in the vibrant Hongdae club scene in Seoul.
Monoban's debut full length album is released in March 2015.
