Produced by Gary Olson (The Ladybug Transistor) and Gus Franklin (Architecture in Helsinki, The Smallgoods), and features performances by his friends Kyle Forrester (Crystal Stilts) Linton (The Aislers Set), Hamish Kilgour (The Clean) and Ryan McPhun (Ruby Suns), as well as a duet with Bec Rigby of Melbourne beach party R&B favourites The Harpoons.
Monnone Alone — The Business World
“Back in Melbourne, Monnone Alone grew to be a band with the introduction of Gus Franklin (Architecture in Helsinki, The Smallgoods) on drums and Connal Parsley (Your Wedding Night, Francis Plagne) on bass. Described by Mess+Noise as “classic indie pop with groggy vocals worthy of Stephen Pastel”, Monnone Alone’s sound has been shaped by the likes of Jonathan Richman, Television Personalities and Flying Nun.”
