Based in Toronto, the band exploded onto the scene with a DIY ethos and killer live shows. MONOWHALES first made waves with their breakout single “Home” in 2016. The POV-shot video of Shaar’s Toronto-based adventures went on to be viewed over 1M times and set the stage for the incredibly creative and clever videos the band has become known for. 2018’s EP Control Freak, produced by AL-P (Death From Above 1979, Young Empires) spawned multiple singles that received commercial radio play across Canada maintaining traction on the National Alternative Rock Radio charts for over nine months in 2018. Their first single "Take It Back" was described by 102.1 the Edge as "the track that put them on the indie rock-map in Canada" after it rose to #25 on the Canadian Alternative Rock Radio charts. Follow-up singles "Real Love" climbed to #31 and third single "Let It Go" peaked at #32. “Take It Back”, “Real Love” and “Let It Go” are currently featured on the popular Netflix show Spinning Out (Season 1, Episode 5) which features a cameo performance by the band. “Take It Back” is also featured in Canadian drama television series Northern Rescue. In 2019, MONOWHALES received the Jim Beam INDIE Award for Best Alternative Artist/Group of the Year and the Forest City London Music Award for Ontario Independent Recording Artist.
