Mental Monky Ballet

Stockholm based band Mental Monky Ballet, was founded in February 2013 by lead singer / songwriter / producer Vivi Lundström and producer/songwriter Jan Fretman. According to their website the band plays “broken rock poetry, telling stories about a crazy, dark and incomprehensible yet beautiful, shimmering and spiritual world. Mainly combines tribal vibe with pumping and trashy sounds from post punk and grunge, colored with melancholic and dreamy sounds.

We want to wake people up and make them use and be fine with the fact that the world is equally about building up and tearing down, equally about the beautiful and the ugly, equally about harmony and chaos.”

Along with Vivi, members of the band are Anna Wennersten – keyboard and backing vocals, Björn Bertilsson – guitars, Håkan Englund – drums, Maxa Fon Pashayeva – bass and Linnea Simon – backing vocals.

The group will be releasing the EP Breaking the Law later this month.  One of the interesting songs off the EP for me is “Club 27″ a song the band says is “a celebration to Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and other musical personalities forming the mythical 27 Club, strongly associated with the hard and destructive “rock’n roll”  the song “You’re More Trouble Than Your Worth” is another good song off the EP, in fact of the seven songs on the EP, I really didn’t hear a bad song.
