Monoglot’s music thrives on repetitive patterns layered over a pulsating rock grove, pop mock-up and improv. It merges these elements quite accessibly and draws out melodies to shine through the fabric every now and then. The Berlin-, Reykjavík and Basel-based quintet expands genre boundaries but is perhaps best to be pinned down in the midst of avant-rock, creative jazz and minimal music. It consists of Fabian Willmann and Sebastian Von Keler on tenor saxophones, Kristinn Kristinsson on guitar, Valentin Link on bass and Michael Heidepriem on drums. Monoglot played seven international tours and released two studio albums since 2014. The latest, “Wrong Turns And Dead Ends” (2017), was named „A post-jazz/prog masterpiece“ by The Math Rock Times and „daring, free-spirited and fresh“ by German Jazz Thing magazine. The New Album “Make” will be released May 2020.
