Press Quotes

'Light Prism' is a wispy piece of shoegaze pop that lulls hypnagogically.

Under the Radar

Thick, hypnotic showgaze may be Monkman's mode of sonic expression, but there's a deep appreciation for humanity that underpins his music.


Zoon's debut album is nothing short of remarkable.


'Bleached Wavves' is the perfect name for a shoegaze album deeply evocative yet highly enigmatic in equal measure.

Apple Music

[The album] is a hypnotic, melancholy gaze that travels in time (and life) through its soothing trance and earnest lyricism.

American Songwriter

Monkman's breathy alto can sound so transcendental at times, you'll want to space out right along with him guiding you in songs such as 'Light Prism'.
