Brooklyn trio, Old Monk, have released the first in a series of 2013 singles, “Seymour”, today on Eenie Meenie Records – purchase here. You can stream the track via Prefix – repost here. Guitarist/vocalist Josh Carrafa met drummer Ian Burns while attending college in Colorado, bonding over a mutual love of music and performing together in various local bands. The two started to collaborate on songs via the Internet when Carrafa moved to New York to attend law school, writing much of what was to become their debut LP, Birds of Belize, before Burns followed to New York and Old Monk was formed with Tsugumi Takashi joining on bass. Old Monk released Birds of Belize, in early 2012. The L Magazine named the band in their annual “8 Bands You Need To Hear” in April of 2012.
