Moniker is a progressive rock band based out of Boston MA. Their sound has been described as “ethereal sonic storytelling, with U2 textures, Radiohead rhythms, and Pink Floyd psychedelia.” In 2012 the band released two albums and performed multiple shows at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin TX for the second consecutive year. Moniker was nominated for New England Emerging Artist of the Year in 2011, and won a regional poll for Artist of the Month that same year. According to TIME OUT Magazine, “Boston’s likely got more unsigned indie bands per cubic inch than any city in America, but even still it’s hard to imagine why someone, somewhere hasn’t picked up a band like Moniker.”
