Mon Khmer


Mon Khmer – Foley Stewart and Midnight Hollow

Having met in Boston, the four friends found home in Brooklyn and formed Mon Khmer, following a summer of session work that included Hammarsing (vocalist/guitarist) joining Albert Hammond Jr. on a world tour.

Assembled from a wide range of backgrounds, the band shirks identification with any one genre. Some have made attempts, like Death and Taxes who wrote “You can easily parse out an influence of Battles in their sound for it was breezy and punchy, and their pool of effects pedals kept people’s ears perked up throughout.” While Brooklyn Vegan suggests “an otherworldly feel.”

Foley was born and raised in NYC. He started playing local clubs at age 15 and has gone on to work with producers like Mark Ronson and Emery Dobyns and toured the US and Europe with artists like Fran Healy of Travis. He is currently recording his debut EP.

In this supposed mecca of thriving DIY art scenes, Brooklyn based TheMidnight Hollow have caught the ADD and wandering eyes while shunning away from the ambiguous docile stigma of indie and ubiquitous bedroom projects. Half full of satire and half empty on the literal translations of today as a human, their live show is ambivalent yet endearing, going from whispers to yelling to soul falsetto in seconds and capturing even the most phone addicted audience. Between intensity and the seductive moments where the songs breath lies their signature sense of mystery and curiosity that elevate one as high as the atmosphere they’ve created all the way to the tippidy top of outer space where we feel…high.
