Signed to US imprint PaperCup Music and repurposing the faded sounds 1980s lo-fi, experimentalism of the 90?s and the gleaming remnants of Brooklyn dream-pop, both Monograms’ Floors and Ceilings singles to date Speak and Spell and For Safety were recently coined as both dark and catchy. Monogram spoke with The Fountain about the EP and idyllic plans for the year.

TF: You have a new EP coming out, what can we expect from Floors and Ceilings?

Monograms is a bit eclectic by nature, and this is a compilation of sorts with remixes from 3 other different artists; so I would expect a hefty scoop of eclecticity.

TF: How would you sum up the record in one sentence?

I gathered some additional sonic thoughts on the heels of last year’s full length release.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year? 

See friends, travel, play shows again, make up for lost time.

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

It was Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NYC… by far, but the venue there closed and moved during covid. Up next I’m still holding out a shred of hope for Primavera festival someday
