A passionately aggressive rock band from Tokyo whose music has been described as 'the soundtrack to the end of the world' but who actually exemplify a more hopeful vision. Their recent influences include orchestral textures and the tale of a girl who, after developing leukemia in the aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing put her hope in an old Japanese legend about folding paper cranes. Among the artists Mono have worked with is Steve Albini, who produced their album 'Walking Cloud and Deep Red Sky, Flag Fluttered and the Sun Shined'.

Evoking influence from ‘Moon Pix’-era Cat Power and her serene contemporaries such as Emma Ruth Rundle, A.A.Williams is coming out the gate as an exemplary songwriter with anthemic and passionate melodies; the swathe of which leaves the listener doused in sonic density. An unearthly voice soars over delicate yet decisive chords at a performance from the dark-folk singer-songwriter whose debut EP met with awed reviews. A.A. Williams has been aligned with the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, but is also moulded by the fragility and experimentation of artists like Radiohead and PJ Harvey. Williams arrived in January 2019 with her self-titled EP, going on to perform at Roadburn and ArcTanGent festivals and lining up appearances with Amenra, Russian Circles, The Sisters of Mercy and Cult of Luna.
