I found this band called The Monumentos, and chances are that you haven’t heard of them. After sort of accidentally finding them through Facebook, I went a bit crazy. They’ve only released a few songs, and their most popular one is “Crooks”. A laid-back slice of funk-rock, Crooks is the perfect song to listen to after you get back from school. Or Uni. Or work. Either way, this is a perfect winding down song. The lyrics are beautiful, and when you read them as text you would mistake them for a poem. Their live video on YouTube gives you a sense of who they really are. They’re a group of high school teenagers, who decided they might have a go at making music. OK,  but all bands start out somewhere. Even Bombay Bicycle Club started out in secondary school. So please listen to this song, positively minded, all the way through, and bear in mind they could be huge soon.

I’m sure you’ll love them, Ethan. (Please feel free to e-mail me on ethancohen2@aol.co.uk)
