BIOGRAPHY

Monograms is the alias of front-man and multi-instrumentalist Ian Jacobs. Over the past few years, the project quickly expanded from a Brooklyn, NYC bedroom recording experiment to a full band endeavor - current lineup includes Rich Carrillo (drums), Michelle Feliciano (synth) and Sam Bartos (bass). Since its conception, Monograms has been performing everyone they can get feet and sound to stage, supporting international indie regulars Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Goggs (Ty Segall/Ex Cult) Sunflower Bean, Ezra Furman, Caveman, A Place To Bury Strangers, Girl Band, Be Forest, Vertical Scratchers (members of Caribou/Brainiac), Dreamers, Gang Of Youths, Quilt  and more, as well as attaining notable press traction from all over the U.S. and Europe. The music of Monograms is eclectic by design; mosaic pallets that use Jacobs’ vocals, melodic threads and lucid rythms to hold it all together. The foundation of pop-song structures wrapped in new-wave tones and angular riffs, point the band’s approach at previous decades and the heyday of alternative college radio, as well as contemporary DIY vibes that pull from similar genres. Monograms is Brooklyn’s Nuke Wave.
